On the Tenth Day of Christmas…  Expand Your Skill Set

Take the leap and challenge yourself, but make sure you do your research before marching on to your next job in order to land firmly on your feet.

Be both ambitious and realistic.  Study the industry you are looking to move into and make sure you have all the technical skills required before making the transition.  Look up the requirements for your desired role and demonstrate how you have met these on your CV.  Ensure you have the appropriate level of knowledge, qualifications and training, and key competencies for the desired job.

Taking on a new challenge could simply be about expanding your skill set.  Undertake an online training course, join a public speaking club, or even join the Christmas choir in order to fill the gaps.  It may not even be directly work linked; but it could still enhance your employability moving forward.  Aim to stand out from the crowd and include any other information on your CV that will increase your employability.  You may speak additional languages, have published work, or won an award – these are all marketable skills to both your current and prospective employers.
