Whether you're just starting a new job or still looking for one, these tips will help you get prepared:
Get on a learning curve
Identify what you need to learn in the next 6 months and create a plan for accomplishing this goal. Continue to set learning agendas for yourself.
Be technically knowledgeable
Majority of work today requires technical competence. You should be competent on the basic computer systems and software programs and aware of how technology can be applied.
Improve your personal interaction skills
More work these days will become automated. Young professionals will stand out if they can interact with people effectively.
Be good at balancing work and life
As work spills over into life, and vice versa, professionals must know when work starts and stops and help other employees who may be crossing these two areas.
Take time to look over the horizon
Be a futurist. Cultivate the ability to forecast what’s just around the corner, so you can prepare for it.
