Dear Aspirant, apart from academics, a zoologist has to learn few basic things which will be definitely help you in your profession and personal life.

For your profession, you have to update yourself regularly by reading the new developments in your subject or field. The reason being is that whatever we have studied in our masters or doctoral degree program, after some time the things become obsolete (not all but some topics). Although the basics remains the same. Still you have to update yourself by reading latest books, latest research articles related to your subject and also by discussion with your colleagues.
An updated knowledge will give you confidence and also cast and impression among your students, superiors, colleagues and clients.
You have to also undergo some trainings related to your instruments, since as a zoologist you may be conducting some experiment or research and then you may be supposed to handle some sophisticated instrument.
Besides these academic skills you will be also required to develop interpersonal skills. The interpersonal skills are the skill which we use with others when communicate or interact with individual or in a group. Persons with good interpersonal skills are very successful in personal and professional life. Persons having good interpersonal skills are considered, calm, cool, optimistic, charismatic and confident. Such persons are really liked by others.
As a zoologist you may interacting with your students, colleagues, superiors and clients. Without good interpersonal skills you cant communicate well with them and meanings of your opinion may change.
The common interpersonal skills are;
1. Verbal communication skills; how say and what we say to others
2. Non verbal communication skills; here we do not say a word, but our body language conveys the meaning
3. Negotiation skills; here we negotiate the things and we come to a common conclusion
4.Center link description here; how we interpret the verbal and non verbal messages sent or said by others.
5. Problem solving; how we solve the problem and come to a decision amicably.
6. Assertiveness; communicating our values, beliefs, ideas, to others

One has to understand that without proper interpersonal skills we cant convey our message to effectively to others.

Hope i have answered your query.

Good luck...
