Knobull Helps Professionals Start Futureproofing Their Career
That may not seem like a big deal, but at a time when the skills required to secure a good job are constantly evolving thanks to innovations in technology, putting in the work to prepare yourself for the future."
Futureproofing Boosts Success
Futureproofing is all about making sure you're ready for what your career journey has in store. It can take a number of forms – including reconsidering the way you think and behave. JobStars career coaching helps a person through this process and can be accessed on the Knobull homepage.
Getting to know yourself is also a useful learning experience. Many thought it was a ridiculous concept at first, but didn't spend enough time thinking about goals.
Stay On Top Of Skills
By staying on top of your skills list, practising those which you haven't used in a while and learning new ones, you'll be in a better position to take any changes to the working world in your stride.
Training and upskilling are essential to boosting career prospects, by building on the skills you already have to meet the demands of employers, and the wider economy, today. Taking steps to futureproof your career now means you can get yourself on the front-foot for these changes, rather than having to react quickly.
Not all upskilling has to be done under the supervision of a manager or as part of an office-based course. There are loads of ways to learn new skills that'll help you progress in your career, like looking into courses that expand skills by tapping Fast Company edX on the Knobull homepage.
Just because new skills are being brought into the workplace, it doesn't mean your current skills will be made redundant – in fact, they could end up becoming the thing that sets you apart. You just need to know how to use this to your advantage.
In a similar vein to the above, making your transferrable skills clear in any job application will help you put your best foot forward if you decide to move industries or specialities.
Bentley concluded, "They can be role-related, technical or general skills that can be put to use in a variety of jobs across a number of industries. Many employers look at more than just job titles, preferring to concentrate on a candidate's relevant skills and experience.
Examples of transferrable skills include IT, communication, research and planning, interaction and liaison skills, organization management and leadership. Explore others by requesting the transferable skills guide at the Knobull Contact page."
