Candidates may have the qualifications and 'hard skills' needed to be able to manage the job role but without a well-honed set of 'soft skills', employees are less inclined to hire.

For a candidate to be employable, it must have good grasp of both technical as well as soft skills. He further adds, "We would like to utilize our corporate exposure in skilling fresh graduates as well as experienced candidates in preparing them for the modern corporate world in terms of Technology, sales and good attitude".
