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.
