Researchers at the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce (CEW) recently studied employer demand for different competencies, or the "knowledge, skills, and abilities workers use in their jobs." Those employers value most: communication, teamwork, leadership, and problem solving.
Exhibiting these competencies while on the job can ultimately lead to an earnings boost of as much as 20%, according to the study.
Even before you get hired, highlighting these skills on your resume and during the interview process can help catch an employer's attention. Here's how to showcase core competencies during the hiring process, according to Julia Pollak, labor economist at ZipRecuiter.
