What will you do to ensure that you have all the right stuff for the types of roles you are looking for?
Employers are still screaming they can’t find the right talent for many jobs they are trying to fill. I know this seems hard to believe. But, part of the problem might be how you are communicating/writing about your skills. And the other part of the problem is, you may NOT have the right skills.
Research by reading trade publications and/or industry newsletters, talk to people in your profession, talk to recruiters, read lots of job postings, look at LinkedIn profiles of people holding the role you are interested in.
Prove You’ve Got Tech Savvy
You can provide evidence and proof of your technical skills and knowledge by putting them into action, but don’t stop there. The internet is your new resume. Document and/or showcase you’ve USED the skills by provide proof in the form of video, written case studies, slide decks, presentations- produce something publicly shareable is the idea.
