Being able to manage multiple projects from start to finish is crucial. With more businesses going remote, employers need to have confidence that their staff can project manage their time and schedules efficiently. Employers also highly value those who can mentor and train their coworkers. You can grow your leadership skills by expanding your responsibilities with project management.

3. Collaboration Skills & Integrity

Employers want their staff to be dependable while being able to work effectively as a team. It is important you can follow safety and operational procedures, retain confidential information, and uphold the standards of the company. Teamwork shows that you’re able to collaborate well with your colleagues to achieve collective goals.

Interpersonal skills can be displayed throughout all effective methods of communication such as email, virtual meetings and face-to-face.
