The Best Ways to Boost Your Resume and

Improve Your Skill Set

There comes a time for all of us when we look at our CV and realize that it has grown a little stale. It does not matter whether you are fresh out of university or whether you have been working in your industry for years, there is always a moment when you realize that you need to give it some extra juice. Maybe it is because you have been working in the same position for years and you have noticed that the technology around you is starting to move outside of your realm of expertise. Maybe it is because you are job hunting and you are struggling to convince potential employers that you are more than capable of learning on the job. With the great resignation underway, the job market is wide open and there are plenty of opportunities out there for people looking to make a career change. Here are a few tips to help you make sure that your CV will stand out for that promotion, that new job, or simply to make sure that you are staying up to date with the latest developments in your field. Ask If You Can Shadow On A Project One of the biggest hindrances to anyone looking for a promotion or a new job is a lack of relevant experience. We have all been in the situation where the interview feedback comes in and we are told that someone else had more time in a role that was the same or directly similar. If you are angling for a new role in your company, or you simply want to learn more about the field you are working in, ask your manager if you can shadow one of your colleagues on the next project. Even if the answer is no, you are still showing that you are committed to developing new skills at your place of work. Enroll In An Online Course If you are worried that there are skills that you are missing or if you feel like things have changed rapidly and that you need to update your skillset, then an online course could be for you. The attitude that you only need to study at the very start of your career has long since been shown to be outdated. With things changing so quickly, it is more important than ever to stay abreast of the latest developments that will impact your career. Take health sciences, for example. We have seen major changes across so many areas and disciplines over the last few years, from physical and recreational therapy to data management and home health support. This is why so many health care professionals are choosing to enroll in health science courses online. Online health courses can teach you more about everything from workplace safety to employee satisfaction and engagement. Address Your Weaknesses Learning new skills is very important, but honing existing ones is just as crucial when it comes to making you the best option for a new role. Everyone knows that every job interview will feature the question “What would you say one of your weaknesses is?” As much as we would all rather not discuss the things that we are bad at when we are trying to convince someone that we are definitely worth hiring or promoting, there is a lot of value in understanding where your skillset could use some improvement. Take a step back and really think about where you could improve. Maybe time management is not your forte, or you struggle to assert yourself and get your point across in a team environment. Once you have a clearer understanding of where your weaknesses lie, you can start working on them. Stay Up To Date With The News This may sound like a small point, but it is very important. Things are changing so quickly out there right now and many of the issues on the front pages are having a direct impact on businesses and industries. Understanding the kind of pressures that your place of work may be under, from rising energy costs to the price of climate change, will show you where you can be a part of the solution. It will also allow you to be an active part of conversations about where your place of work is going in the future and the kind of challenges it will be facing. Don’t Sell Yourself Short One of the most important things to remember when you are looking for a way to make yourself a more attractive prospect to your bosses or potential employers is that downplaying your talents and experience is not a good idea. No one is looking for a show-off but there is a shortage of staff across many sectors right now and people are looking for workers who are gifted and who know what they are doing. When you are working on your profile, do not be afraid to sell yourself. You have the skills and the talent to be a real asset.
