The study sought to find out the relationship between negotiation, critical thinking and job success. A correlational study design was used in the study to establish the relationship between negotiation, critical thinking and job success. A total sample of 186 respondents were subjected to self-administered questionnaires during data collection.

Results showed a no significant relationship between all types of negotiation except for collaboration and critical thinking, a significant relationship between negotiation and job success, as well as a significant relationship between critical thinking and job success. Therefore, the study provides a basis and implications for further investigation on the impact of interpersonal soft skills in employment. It was recommended that employers and stakeholders in the education system invest more in training programs, so as to impart these skills into the workforce and make jobs more successful.
