Engineers excel at solving problems, but developing soft skills to enhance careers isn't always a top priority. Scoring an interview means you have the technical chops. After that, it's all about marketing yourself, asking the right questions, making good connections, and choosing the paths that lead toward career goals. Without those, you're just another number in a large crowd of engineers.

Many recent grads like Jordan Duhe, a design engineer at Noble Plastics in Grand Coteau, LA, picked up key intangibles on the job, with college providing a good educational base. Colleges like Missouri University of Science and Technology organize projects and competitions so students develop skills like negotiation, teamwork and presentation, says Christopher Ramsay, the university's assistant vice provost for student design.

Don’t be just another engineer. Here are 12 soft skills you should develop to succeed in your job interviews and career.

1) Communication
2) Presentation
3) Sell yourself
4) Don’t be just another engineer
5) Negotiate your value
6) Self-confidence
7) Humility
