6 skills for succeeding in your job in 2012

Competition is always fierce for great jobs and promotions, and even more so in the face of high unemployment rates and a difficult economic environment. But your skills will always be your most important currency when it comes to demonstrating your value to employers.

Rob Sabo from Schools.com tapped me for my thoughts on the top skills employees need for career success in 2012. We had a great conversation about skills that will help you get hired or land that promotion, and how to stand out from the crowd.

Read Rob’s article to see what I had to say about technical literacy, communication skills, social media, diversity, and work ethic. He reports on a lot of great advice about the skills you need to get promoted, or hired, in the year to come. Thanks Rob, for the opportunity to contribute to the story, it was a pleasure!
