Skills that will get you a job
Whereas before the most important thing for getting a job was to have several academic qualifications, now it is crucial to have a series of skills that make you stand out from the rest of the candidates. At a time at which many jobs are being automated, the skills that differentiate humans from machines are gaining more importance than ever before.
For that reason, you should develop qualities such as the ability to adapt to change, teamwork, initiative, creativity to implement innovative ideas in businesses, a willingness to keep learning, and, of course, digital skills. These are just some of the skills that are most valued by recruiters, over and above any qualifications.
You also have to take into account the fact that workplaces have changed and you should learn to move to a new tune: up to four different generations co-exist in offices, new methodologies are being used to outline projects, and companies are increasingly international.
Understanding the new ways of working and strengthening these skills will not only help you to get a job, it will also enable you to evolve within your company.
