Basic Job Skills
To be able to secure and hold a job in today’s competitive job market, you need to equip yourself with both job skills (specific skills) and employability skills (general soft skills) that allow you to:
- grab the attention of your potential employer
- secure the job
- work your way up the career ladder.
Whilst job skills are really more specific and require special training and education, once you understand the fundamental soft skills and characteristics that employers generally look for, you will be able to customize your job search communication (resume, cover letters, job interviews) to successfully align them to meet the most common employability requirements.
By making sure you have the basic employability skills, you are one step closer to ensuring that you have a higher chance of grabbing your future/current employer’s eyes to get yourself recognized above all others. Equip yourself with the work skills you need and put it out to use.
