What skills do I have that match what employers need and where they don’t match how to I turn them into personal assets?
Too many of the unemployed do not have the skills that employers now say they need. What happen to “on the job training”? To internships? Apprenticeships? How can employers bring on board motivated workers who need some additional training to meet the demands of the jobs for which they are hired?
Today too many employers, out-of –work folks take a narrow view of the strengths that they bring to the world of work. Skills can be learned when someone is excited about the tasks involved and wants to be effective in the new job. Someone who already has the skills and really dislikes the activities of the job will be less effective than another whose strengths lie internally in really being passionate about the job and the work involved.
