What Canadian Employers Want

Generally, Canadian employers want you to have both soft skills and hard skills. Soft skills are sometimes called employability skills. They include decision making, effective communication, positive attitude, teamwork and commitment to the job. Hard skills are the technical skills you need to do a certain job. For example, using computer programs, ability to speak a particular language, administrative skills, operating machines, and analyzing data. The hard skills needed for a job vary based on occupation type and employer needs.​
