Common skills employers look for in employees include communication skills, analytical skills, technical affinity and the ability to work as part of a team. Potential employees should also be able to handle more than one task at a time adequately.
Employees should be able to communicate with written and spoken words, and they should have the skills to actively listen to others. Analytical skills are necessary to judge a situation, see that situation from different points of view, and find out more about the situation. Employees should be up-to-date on the latest computer software and hardware, especially word processing, email and spreadsheet programs.
