Your current work skills aren't good enough anymore.
"I also hear from many business leaders who want to hire in the United
States but can't find workers with the right skills. Growing industries in
science and technology have twice as many openings as we have workers who
can do the job. Think about that, openings at a time when millions of
Americans are looking for work." President Obama State of the Union
If you are hunting for a new job or a better job, are you finding that
your current skills are not a match for the jobs posted? The Baltimore
Sun's article "Mismatch between jobs, job seekers contributes to
unemployment" explains that many job seekers are finding difficulties on
two fronts. The first is that there are still many more job seekers for
every open job. The second is that their current work skills are not a
match for the jobs that are out there.
Regularly taking training and classes that enhance your work skills has
always been a good idea. Today, it is imperative. If you have a job
consider the information given in the Sun's article. Act now to upgrade
your skills so that you will remain marketable if you want a job promotion
or better job. If you are unemployed, call the unemployment office today.
Ask about training and college tuition assistance. A career counselor will
be able to tell you all the skills training available for free through
your state. Many programs pay for tuition in trade schools, community
colleges, and even 4 year universities.
