No matter where you are in your career, either just getting started or leaning in towards retirement, it’s time to skill up!
Honing your skills and knowledge is such an important part of your success (in your job search and in your career).
Consider all the things you need to know:
- Know what employers are looking for
- Know your options
- Know your competition
- Know what skills you need
- Know how to strategically and proactively find a job
This quote by Matthew Sigelman, CEO of Burning Glass stuck out
When employers start hiring back up, they won’t necessarily hire the workers they let go. Instead, they will be looking for people with the skills that will be needed for the future.
