Skills for employment in today's fast Changing World
Delhi: Traditional learning methodologies only go a part of the way to achieving job success in today’s fast paced and constantly changing world. Job specifications change quickly, companies pivot to new products, services and working practices at high speed and it is crucial that as young people are educated in traditional school subjects that they are also taught as early as possible many other skills that apply to today’s world of employment.
 
Out of the box thinking 

Companies are looking for employees with new digital skills, particularly in social media in addition to traditional education, they need employees who are socially confident, make good team players and who are innovative in their “out of the box” thinking. Major companies are now prioritising in their employment process people with excellent soft skills in addition to formal education. Whether or not you are successful in your career may depend on how you relate to other people and to work.
 
What are Soft-Skills

Soft skills are non-technical skills that relate to how you work. They include subjects such as communications, where people with strong communication skills can listen well to avoid misunderstandings and can effectively discuss with employees, supervisors and peers’ actions required in the workplace. They include decision making that enables them to choose between possible solutions and then make the right decision for the circumstance. They include self-reliance, an important skill because they do not need close supervision to do their job effectively.They include positive attitude because people with this skill are generally good to work with because they are positive about life and can be counted upon to keep going, even when times are hard such as the current situation with the global Covid pandemic. Other soft skills could include leadership, time management, self-reliance, dependability, creativity, and many others.
 
Other Critical Understandings 

In addition, it is important for people looking for employment in today’s workplace to understand the priorities given to understanding significant regulatory requirements and behavioural requirements relating to gender, ethnicity, and general workplace behaviour that are mandatory in companies and are regulated by government authorities particularly in Western Europe and the United States of America. Today’s workplace requirements for employees even include an understanding of fraud and compliance regulation and how employees’ actions in the workplace can impact their employers significantly in many ways including significant financial penalties and closure of operations.
 
Supplementary skills impacting job-prospects

There are many other skills needed today that impact on the decision-making process for hiring by employers. If people moving into employment for the first time can show an understanding of the above workplace requirements, then they will have a significant advantage in the interview process and in their ability to integrate quickly into their new company environment and build their successful career path.
