5 Basic Skills You Need Before Applying For A Job

Many people are so preoccupied with getting jobs that they forget to develop themselves.
It is when the job opportunity comes that they find out that they are missing a few requisite ingredients of the ideal employee – so they miss out.

Even where the job is gotten, some cannot keep up with the demands and get kicked out too soon.
Well, you simply have to get these five skills…

1. Excellent communication skills
Most jobs need good communicators, people who can express themselves clearly and positively, both verbally and in writing. It’s one of the key ingredients of success, so it pays to understand what’s involved. Are you constructive or destructive with words?

2. Tenacity and Resilience
It is probably the least underestimated and often abandoned when frustration or boredom sets in. Weak moments are normal, but never let it hold you down, find a way to spring back even better.
Get and keep your job

3. Creative and analytic thinking skills
Creative thinking skills are as much about attitude and self-confidence as about talent. Do you think within or outside the box? What is that amazing thing you have contributed in moving the company closer to its goals? Ask questions such as 'what if….?' or ‘supposing…’

4. Time management skills
Have you ever wondered how it is that some people seem to have enough time to do everything that they want to, whereas others are always rushing from task to task, and never seem to finish anything?
It requires the investment of a little time upfront to prioritize and organize yourself, understanding the difference between urgent and important. But once done, you will find that with minor tweaks, everything on your to do list will be ticked.
Get and keep your job

5. Leadership skills
Leaders set direction, build an inspiring vision, and taking initiative. Leadership is about mapping out where you need to go to "win" as a team or an organization; and it is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring.
