Essential interpersonal skills to highlight on your portfolio

By Staff Writer

As you write your CV, LinkedIn profile or portfolio, it’s key to look at how you communicate your strengths so that you can put your best foot forward.

The job application process can be nerve-wracking, but establishing for yourself, and for whoever may read your application, what your interpersonal skills are, will allow for a fresh feeling of confidence.

It’s always handy to think about the industry you work in, the role you’re looking to secure and where you want to take your career when it comes time to highlight the depth of your abilities.

Below are some interpersonal skills you may choose to highlight on your portfolio, LinkedIn profile or CV:

  • Clear communication
    • Clear communication means that you and your team are being transparent with the information needed for everyone to do their work to the best of their ability and eliminate inefficiencies.
  • Collaborative
    • Collaboration improves the way you work with your team, and wider teams, to band together, solve problems and create opportunities. Collaboration leads to better processes, greater communication and innovation.
  • Detail-oriented
    • This means you’re able to give tasks your undivided attention and catch any problems that may arise. This means your analytical side kicks into gear to complete all projects to the highest degree.
  • Solutions-oriented
    • Being solutions-oriented means you’re not just solving problems, you’re identifying the source of the problem and bringing together the right concepts, people or teams together to rectify and create an opportunity.
