Why do employers hire employees? To help them solve problems. Whether you’re a financial analyst deciding where to invest your firm’s money, or a marketer trying to figure out which channel to direct your efforts, companies hire people to help them find solutions. Problem-solving is an essential and marketableΒ soft skillΒ in the workplace.

My take:

How to Include Problem-Solving Skills in a Job Application

On a Resume

Employers looking for problem-solving skills might include the word β€œproblem-solving” or other synonyms like β€œcritical thinking” or β€œanalytical skills” in the job description.

β€œI would add β€˜buzzwords’ you can find from the job descriptions or LinkedIn endorsements section to filter into yourΒ resumeΒ to comply with the ATS,” Matthew Warzel, CPRW resume writer, advises. Warzel recommends including these skills on your resume but warns to β€œleave the soft skills as adjectives in the summary section. That is the only place soft skills should be mentioned.”
