    Women are 31% behind men in pay, yet they have higher levels of education and experience. What is the reason for this paradox? Harvard Business Review mentioned that women are more likely than men to be judged on their appearance and they are also more likely to have a bad manager that evaluates them in a biased and unfair way. It’s not only women, people who are perceived as different in general have also fewer chances to get promoted or even get hired. The world has more jobs than qualified candidates. To find the ones you’re best at, and most enjoy, it’s better to focus on your skills rather than your resume. Skills are what you’re able to do in any company, but a resume just shows where you’ve been.

    3. Integrity
    Integrity is an important job skill for women to learn because it will help them build trust and credibility with their coworkers. Women often consider integrity along with helpfulness and friendliness as a ‘soft skill’ that doesn’t translate well from an interview into action. Women need to remember that in any situation, they are either working on building their integrity or destroying it.
    4. Teamwork
    Working with a team is something that women often struggle with more than men. It’s hard to be part of a team if you are unwilling to admit you did not meet goals or were wrong about something. Try to think of it this way: Being a member of a successful team is far better than being a lone wolf with poor relationships with co-workers.
    5. Leadership
    Leadership is a term used in many contexts and can inspire feelings that range from admiration to fear, and everywhere in between. Defined casually, the term relates to someone who sets an example for others to follow and who can influence others to accomplish shared goals. Leadership is not gender-based; anyone can be a good leader, regardless of genetic makeup or professional background.
    6. Collaboration
    Collaboration skills can also boost the productivity of your team and help you communicate better. Having the ability to work with others on projects in the workplace, communicate your ideas clearly, being able to interact with team members easily and efficiently, and having the ability to compromise are all skills that are useful in any career.
