Soft skills for hard hackers!
How often do you ran into HR-people who only understand your technical certifications, and do not recognize your communicational skills? Just because you do not wear a tie doesn't mean you can't communicate with non-geeks.
You sure know your communication skills but how do you prove this? Emiel introduces a European certification model for soft skills. This model is already very popular in Austria and is now moving towards The Netherlands. He is very curious for your interest and ideas around the newest initiative. Behind this initiative you'll find the same people who represent the LPI certification in the Netherlands. Just as LPI Netherlands, this will be a non-profit community certification.
Will this initiative help you or will it be another useless paper? Emiel is open for all feedback. Come to the talk and discuss with Emiel about ECo-c. Check www.eco-c.eu (at this moment only in German) for more info.
