Human Capital and Social Capital

Do you find one to be more important than the other?

Human Capital = hard/soft skills, education, experience, etc.

Social Capital = your knowledge sharing, access to others, community participation, your LI activity, articles you’ve written, how you’ve promoted others, etc.

Do you think employers would see more value in a resume and want to hear not only about your Human Capital, but also your Social Capital?

Some employers might weigh Social Capital at the same level (or even higher) than Human Capital.

We often hear: “it’s not what you know, but who you know”.

Hopefully, if you’re a fan of Social Capital, your employer also has an appreciation for this.

Maybe, Social Capital is something you want to spend more time on in 2021, to provide you a leg up for greater career advancement.
