Academic Search Engine Knobull Provides Tools To ID Jobs That Match Searchers' Skills

By: Knobull
BOSTON - March 11, 2022 - PRLog -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull announced, "When you're looking for a new job, you probably head to job boards, pop in your current title (or the title you'd like to have), see what results sound interesting, then apply accordingly. Identifying your skills (along with what you enjoy doing) could lead you to jobs, industries, and career paths you never realized are a perfect fit for you."

A clear idea of the skills you possess can help you better determine what jobs match those skills. Develop a solid understanding of your skill set builds confidence when you begin exploring options and helps you generate keywords to use when searching job boards.

Another great way to identify your skills is to ask a supervisor or coworker what they think your top three strengths are. Learning what others think you're great at may generate more ideas for key skills to use in your search.

Just like you ask your boss or coworkers what they think your top skills are, ask your personal network the same question. Don't forget about transferable skills that can help you move from one job to the next, no matter what it is. Explore how your transferable skills might relate to a career change.

Once you've identified your skills and what jobs might fit those skills, ask if anyone is in or knows someone in the industries you're looking at and is willing to have an informational interview with you.

Learning how people with similar skills have been successful in their job search or career can help you hone in on why positions might be a fit for you. It's a great way to strengthen your knowledge base while gaining valuable job searching tips and tricks.

With a list of skills and jobs that fit them, it's time to start your search. This will populate results that include those skills in the job posting. If taking an assessment isn't in the cards for you, and you aren't getting many helpful results by asking around, try generating a list of your skills by examining your hobbies and personal interests. You may be surprised by what you come up with.

Once you have that list, consider testing out those skills with a part time job or internship to see what happens. If you have a particular hobby, see if using skills you've developed from them leads to interesting full-time job opportunities.

Bentley concluded, "Success in any career requires a mix of hard, soft, and transferable skills. Knobull has developed a full range of assessments and guides to identify these skills. What's more, you may be surprised at what skills you already have and how they've prepared you to take the next step in your career."
