These steps will increase your value to potential employers and give you a competitive edge when applying for jobs that align with your skills.
SHOWCASE YOUR COLLABORATION SKILLS
Collaborating is similar to teamwork, but the benefit of collaboration is that it extends beyond just your team and managers. Working with other people is necessary for 99% of jobs, and being able to collaborate across a company is one of the first skills a new employer will look for. You can show your collaboration skills by using examples of when you have offered or asked for help to complete a task, setting goals with a team, and, yes, building your communication skills.
BUILD YOUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS
In 2021, communication in the workplace is more than just talking. Communication skills are not only necessary for human resources but every employee in the workplace. When businesses want employees who can communicate, they look for individuals who can speak and listen considerately. This includes being able to challenge ideas and opinions respectfully to create positive change. Why? Because new workers are more likely to find better ways to do things and have a fresh perspective that can save businesses money. Building communication skills takes time but will reward you throughout your entire career.
USE TIME MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES
The ability to understand your tasks and coordinate the time it takes to complete each within a workday is a skill that will never go away, no matter your job or role. Whether it's by setting priorities, using a calendar or simply prioritising tasks, making smart decisions about how to use each day is one of the easiest ways to increase your value at work.
Five tips for growing your time management skills are:
Use a daily task list
Give each task a time limit
Create a routine – set your tasks out at the beginning of the day
Get rid of distractions
Set reminders to complete your tasks
BE FLEXIBLE IN THE WORKPLACE
The only certainty in life is that things will keep changing. And this happens in the workplace too! Having strategies in place so that you can be flexible when work and the work environment changes will make you a great candidate for a job and reduce your own stress. This 6 minute Ted Talk highlights three ways you can measure how adaptable you are and how you can become more flexible.
APPLY A GROWTH MINDSET
A growth mindset is when a person thinks they can learn new skills and grow, instead of a fixed mindset where someone believes that they cannot change or improve because of education level or age. Companies like employees with a growth mindset because they look for better ways to do things, want to learn more, and build confidence. This video explains the difference between a fixed and growth mindset in more significant detail.
CULTIVATE YOUR CREATIVITY
Above all else, employers want to know you can think differently. The ability to see the world through new eyes is valuable in any role, but especially so if your job requires creativity or self-direction. If you're not sure how creative you are, try thinking about something you're passionate about. What did you like most about it? How did your interest develop? Now think of ways that passion could help your career.
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR RESOURCES, INCLUDING YOURSELF
Being resourceful is one of the most essential skills in any work environment because it helps you achieve your goals and meet the needs of your team. This can be anything from being able to find a solution to a complex problem, learning how to use new equipment on the fly, or simply identifying when there's a potential conflict between different departments
Jobs Seekers can improve their chances with employers by working on these skills as they search for job opportunities. TRS Resourcing works with technical blue-collar workers to find job openings for their individual skills.
