Clark and human skills organisation Maxme’s founder and chief executive, Renata Sguario, explain. Even jobseekers with little work experience can point to skills they have gained in everyday activities that can be applied in the workplace. PLAYING SPORTS
“Employers will be impressed by calm confidence and are eager to hear about your transferable skills,” she says. The main reason (37 per cent of all workers) is a worry that highlighting their expertise is “showing off” but SEEK head of customer insights and strategy Elyssia Clark says people should not stress about appearing overconfident or arrogant.
“By identifying specific examples that demonstrate how you’ve developed and honed each skill, as well as noting how each skill would benefit the new organisation, you will be able to sell these skills as positive and relevant experiences and impress potential employers.” New research from employment marketplace SEEK reveals 47 per cent of the workforce lack confidence when promoting their skill set to a potential employer, and this is particularly common (58 per cent) among Australians aged 18 to 24.
CREATING TIKTOK VIDEOS Clark says creating social media content that captures the attention of followers takes skill and showcasing content to prospective employers not only helps a jobseeker’s personality shine through but allows them to sell their skills in a more “out of the box” way. “Producing TikTok videos, for example, offers a great avenue for connection and self-expression, and is the ultimate way to demonstrate your skills in creativity,” she says. “All things that will give you a competitive edge when job hunting.”
“Demonstrating the ability to work well with others is one of the most important transferable skills to have at your disposal, showcasing a combination of communication, leadership, diversity, tolerance, support and goal setting,” she says. Being part of a team can teach invaluable life lessons and skills that apply to almost any job, Clark says.
