Miller, Harris N.
Community College Journal, v71 n6 p30-1 Jun-Jul 2001
Suggests that, although technical skills are important, soft skills still make a critical difference in hiring in high-tech fields. Defines soft skills as the ability to think critically, work in teams, share ideas, and perform other non-technological tasks. Describes a study that found that employers still see a four-year college degree as the best pre-hire training a worker can acquire. (NB)
