Here’s my thoughts on what soft skills you will need to be successful within your career (in addition to your technical and educational background): Empathy / Ownership / Self-Control / Integrity / Honesty
From experience of recruiting into such a technical industry, I would advise that it is critical to your success that you brush up on these soft skills. They will positively influence your progress during interviews and within the organisation. Organisations find it hard to sometimes identify these skills, so it falls upon me to uncover what the employer is actually looking for, and to drill these into the prospective candidate!
