Six Elements To Get Career Success


Six Elements To Get Career Success

What qualities do employers look for in candidates? That was the query that was recently posed on an online career discussion forum. Naturally, the specific responses to that question would vary depending on the various positions. However, regardless of whether an employee is a network engineer or a fry cook, employers look for a certain set of common skills in all employees.

Skills You Need to Succeed :


    READING, WRITING, AND MATHEMATICS ARE BASIC SKILLS! Unbelievably, a sizable percentage of high school graduates (and some college grads) are illiterate and unable to mentally multiply. They read at a level appropriate for the eighth grade. Employers are looking for candidates who can read clearly, write clearly, and perform mathematical calculations in a business setting (fractions, percentages, etc.) To complete the basic skill sets required for employment success, include the modern fundamentals of keyboarding proficiency, fundamental computer knowledge, and proficiency with the majority of computerized tools (e.g., fax machine, basic word processing program, etc.).


    Can a potential employee speak well? Can he or she provide customers with positive, educational answers to their questions? Can the potential customer deliver quality support? Successful employees are able to interact positively and non-confrontationally with their coworkers, team members, subordinates, management, and customers. This is true even though not everyone has an outgoing sales personality. Working well with others is a necessary skill for success in all occupations.


    Job searching is a process that takes a lot of commitment and focus to complete successfully. It adheres to the venerable principle known as GIGO, or Garbage In, Garbage Out, among seasoned programmers. You will get poor results if you put in poor effort. Employers are looking for candidates who know how to present themselves positively and who show interest in and familiarity with the businesses they approach. Candidates are judged on their approach to the job search in addition to their qualifications and experience. Dull candidates with better skills have an equal chance of landing the job as enthusiastic candidates with fewer qualifications.


    In this time of layoffs, there is a current hot topic. Who gets fired and who doesn't depends on performance as much as it does on the numbers. Employees who consistently show their value, take the initiative, and establish themselves as a valuable asset to the company experience fewer downsizings than those who work merely mediocre or average hours. The ability to survive within a company through layoffs or moving up the career ladder is a success skill that successful professionals learn and actively cultivate.


    In today's workplace, as all high tech and engineering professionals are aware, it's either learn or burn. To succeed in today's workforce, one must acquire new skills, apply new concepts, and update existing skills. The successful person never stops learning new skills that will make them marketable in their careers, whether it be through seminars, classes, training on new products or releases, or other means. People who are successful are lifelong learners. Employers are searching for candidates who possess the necessary training to meet their requirements.


    Professional development is different from career development. Career development is a process of planning and goal-setting, whereas professional development is learning. Successful people create a career plan with both short- and long-term written goals. They outline the steps required to advance their careers from Point A to Point B within Time Frame C and devise a strategy for doing so. People who are successful have someone to whom they are responsible for their actions and who will keep track of whether they were successful in reaching their objectives. Unbelievably, employers are looking for people who want to work for them for a very long time. A strong selling point for candidates to potential employers is their ability to advance their careers.
