Another Handful of Tips 40 – Career Enhancement

The five best ways to improve your employability rating

If your company is taken over and you are made redundant, are you confident you can find a new job with a good salary?

It is important to keep up with developments in technology and new trends in business or you could be left behind and end up unemployable.

1. Continually learn new skills

Keep upgrading your qualifications and make the most of all relevant training opportunities.

2. Maintain high ethical standards and a good work output

Be honest and helpful in all your work.

People who get things done quickly and efficiently are the ones that get reputations for being good workers.

Be conscientious, reliable and loyal.

3. Take on new responsibilities when they become available

If you are asked to carry out new tasks, show you are willing and accept responsibilities.

Be prepared to make firm decisions, even if some are unpopular at the time. Consider all aspects of the subject and be fair and decisive.

4. Accept leadership roles

Join professional groups and organisations and make an effort to strengthen your social and business networks.

Accept leadership roles to help build your reputation and your confidence.

5. Find a mentor or mentors

Get advice from experienced people who can advise you on your career and support you in times of uncertainty and stress. We all need someone to discuss our problems and our uncertainties.
