JOB Readiness is Constantly Evolving. Ask yourself if you are 'Job Ready'?

August 28, 2017

 

 

What is JOB READINESS? 

 

Many young people find it difficult to find work after they finish school or finished their studies.  

Many people with vast amounts of experience find it difficult to re-enter the workforce after taking a hiatus. 

 

In this ever-changing, world job readiness is constantly evolving.   You may have specific qualifications, but  you may  lack basic ‘Job readiness’ skills.   Job readiness is multi-faceted. It is what employers are assessing during your interview and what will determine your success in the workforce. 

 

We have divided some job readiness skills into categories.  Have you asked yourself if you are JOB READY?

 

EDUCATION:

_____  Do I have a certificate, diploma or degree?

_____  Am I computer literate?  Do I have MS Office, MS Word, Excel skills?
