"Can you handle unexpected situations? Can you empathize with others? Can you work well together? Can you think of alternative solutions if something doesn't work? Do you see opportunities to do things better? Can you handle money well and bear financial responsibility? Are you creative? All those skills are worth gold, in any job," she said.
