Knobull Helps Close The Job Seeker's Skill Gap

By: Knobull
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Oct. 31, 2023 - PRLog -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull reported, "To stand out requires a strategy. You don't fall into being a candidate by chance. Industries are evolving. Demands are high, and with that, the calibre of candidates must meet market and industry expectations."

In the U.S, there are an estimated 9.8 million job openings, but only 5.9 million unemployed workers, according to an October report. Even if every unemployed person in the country was hired, there would still be approximately 4 million open jobs.

You can seek to upskill yourself with use of edX, through a mix of niche, technical, and non-technical "soft" skills. You stand a better chance at opening numerous doors to career opportunities that are literally waiting for you. This help is located at the Knobull homepage.

What Are Some Of These In-Demand Skills?

LinkedIn analyzed job listings on some of the most in-demand skills and listed management, communication, customer service, leadership, sales, project management, research, analytical skills, marketing, and teamwork.

The most highly-prized (and high-income) technical skills  include data analysis, UX, software development, and cloud computing. You can request skill assessments at the Knobull contact page.

How Do I Gain These Skills As A Job-Seeker?

You need to maximize every opportunity available for your skills development.

You could use cheap and free sites such as LinkedIn Learning's courses, and to gain certificates; you could try edX's certification programs that are both free and low cost.

How Do I Gain These Skills As A Working Professional?

Begin by setting SMART goals. You can upskill through various sources, such as requesting your employer to give you access to stretch opportunities on projects at work, staying in-the-know with industry news through reading business publications, listening to podcasts, and even joining industry membership associations.

How To Upskill When Employers Have A Low L&D Budget

Prioritize upskilling critical skills that align with organizational developmental objectives and identify the skills that will make the most impact toward those goals. If you have narrow learning and development options, you can set development goals, targeting skills that can help achieve an employer's desired outcome.

Explore asynchronous options, forums, mentor groups or in-person workshops. Also, think about learning and development holistically and consider how current benefits, like tuition assistance, can be better leveraged and aligned you with company learning and development objectives.

Bentley concluded, "Job seekers and workers can all play a unique role in boosting the economy and future-proofing careers. Take time today to make at least one small step towards developing yourself. One step in the right direction will lead to another, and will set you on the journey to be an in-demand worker, highly-sought after in many industries."
