Hey TCE, What Are Employers Looking For in 2016?

Don’t Get Anxious – Get Prepared! Welcome to the next 52 Monday mornings of the New Year. Forecasts are sharing positive job growth and hiring news this year! In fact, according to my, TCEJobStop there were over 800K new job openings listed 7 days prior to this post. Proof positive that companies are looking for great talent in this new year.  But the REAL question is…will you be one of them!

Never fear, The Career Engineer is here to share “What’s HOT in the Career Space in 2016.”

 

  1. Use of Technology innovation: The ability to command technology, understand data and analytics are a big deal in the 2016 job market. It’s not enough to just know WHAT it is…you have to know HOW to use it…the RIGHT way.

 

  1. PALS is STILL King: Remember your reputation will out weigh a resume..anyday!  So our TCE coined “Performance, Accomplishments and Leadership” aka PALS is still in effect.  Bottom-line, today’s employers want PALS. if you don’t have it, then you are OUT!

 

  1. Skills vs. School: Hear me folks, a college degrees is vital but it’s not everything. Certifications and/or “proof positive” performance of “in-demand” skills are what employers are looking for.  Don’t be paper WISE and skills foolish. In fact, I believe you should have…both!

 

  1. Mobility is Key: Candidates who can truly function “in business” with mobile devices/technology to work efficiently and effectively are in demand. This is beyond social sharing and Twitter.  It’s  REALLY about doing more with less AND still being ACCURATE , EFFICIENT and FAST. (Yep, welcome to the New World).

 

  1. Who is Hiring:  Our aging population has created a big demand for health care related jobs and technology to support that industry. But it’s not the only popular industry, keep your eyes open for other grow sectors listed in this article Top 30 Fastest Growing Industries.
