5 soft skills we get during university studies

In the midst of the university admission campaigns, a number of articles appeared on the web calling on enrollees not to join the student flow. The main arguments of the authors of this content refer to the fact that higher education is too concentrated on needless and dead "theories", but not the things that are useful in real life.

But what I want to say in defense of high-education and the "proven scenario" for the school graduates is that studying at the university contributes to the development of some "soft skills", which employers have recently started talking about as being in high demand. What are these skills?

How do scientists represent themselves in social networks?

Often a Facebook profile allows you to find "keys" to a person, to understand what is interesting and important to him/her, and where are the contact points that are necessary to start a dialogue. Perhaps this article, dedicated to the social image of a scientist, will help to strengthen that shaky bridge of interaction between science and the media, which enthusiasts from both sides are trying to build.

So, I present to your attention the classification of scientists regarding their profiles and behavior in global social networks (the classification is unquestionably subjective, without claims to be scientific, which gives you the right to stop reading on this point).
