“Skill Up" to Land that Job”

News abounds about a "skill gap," or the difference between the skills people have as opposed to the skills that employers need to fill available jobs. The job resource Web site Quintessential Careers offers this advice to help close an individual`s skill gap.

1. Look at certification or technical training programs as ways to acquire new skills. Professional associations or community colleges are excellent resources for building competencies.

2. Become an apprentice. Some professions such as electronics, plumbing, or machining offer paid apprenticeship programs.

3. Volunteer at a nonprofit. It`s a great way to gain knowledge about how to use databases, build Web sites, and learn accounting procedures that you can transfer to a paying position.

4. Freelance. Expand your skills on the Internet as a freelancer, a contractor, or a "micropreneur."

Remember that old saying: Anything that`s worth having is worth fighting for. Be ready to fight to land that job.

Critical thinking and discussion: How can you leverage your current talents to earn money while you look for a job in your chosen field? Besides learning new skills at an unpaid position, what else can you gain from volunteering? Why is it important to constantly update your skills?
