Job market

What is essential if you want to succeed in the 21st-century job market?

Working the world in past decades has been changing dramatically. The job market today is difficult for both employees and employers because everything is developing and changing so fast. For many individuals, education is essential in the job market. However, not everyone believes in education, some believes that higher education does not prepare future employees for the job market. The question we have to answer is what you need to be successful in the 21st-century working world.

One way to succeed in the nowadays job market is to get to know yourself better. People need to know what they enjoy doing, what exclusive skills they have, in which areas they could be the best and what passions do they have. When you are choosing your career you should think about your lifestyle you want in the future and what things do you want from life. If you choose the career you enjoy and have the passion for it you will enjoy your job and you will succeed in it.

In reality, all education institutions should prepare students for future careers and job market. It is very important of education institutions to give knowledge for students. Besides that very important is to provide students with the thinking and behavior that leads to success. Education institutions should increase students’ enthusiasm, improve their self-discipline and try to help them to get more life experience, which could be useful in their future job.

All things considered, you need to be both prepared by education institutions and prepare yourself for the job market to become successful in it. The sooner you get interested and take actions in educating yourself, trying new things you have never done to get life experience, the more chances you will have to succeed in the job market.

Many teachers, researchers, and professionals claim that there are numerous benefits to producing education that applies to tomorrow’s job market. Some of the positive outcomes of this learning philosophy include:

Increased student enthusiasm. Many studies have shown (and many teachers believe) that formulating relationships between school learning and working activities increase student’s interest in a subject. Combining some programs that let students go on-the-job – such as joining a firefighter in their daily duties and routines – can empower a child and heighten their interest in the course.

Increased appreciation and understanding. Students that are able to link school learning to everyday career responsibilities are more likely to have a more thorough grasp of the subject and concepts. For example, kids that dislike chemistry may finally understand (and even grow to love!) this science subject after witnessing how it works in a bakery.

Better employment outcome. Students that learn how their academics apply to their careers are more likely to hold successful jobs. Education that is made relevant to tomorrow’s job market fosters skills and knowledge highly preferred in employees (such as professionalism, problem-solving, multi-tasking and innovation).

Better personal skills. Experience with the ‘job market’ world encourages students to form beneficial habits, such as organization, the ability to multitask, effective communication, self-respect, professionalism, and punctuality.

There is encouraging evidence that education should be geared towards preparing students for tomorrow’s job market, not only for their own gain but also for the success of their future employers. Learning never comes back void, but learning can even help boost students’ standing by benefiting them in their future career.

In today’s job market it is far more important to have practical skills than theoretical knowledge. In the future, job applicants may not need any formal qualifications. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

In a competitive world today, employers tend to recruit only highly qualified employees with working experience. The working skills of employees are often valued higher than their formal education. However, I do not agree with the idea that workers don’t need theoretical knowledge to prepare for good work.

It is understandable that practical working skills and experience are becoming more and more important in working. People often say that there is a long distance between theory and practice. One can only work proficiently and effectively if he practices doing his job many times and continually. There are a lot of students in my former university who always find it hard to find a job as what they learn at university was just theoretical and it didn’t do any help for them in real life working.

On the other hand, to have practical skills only is surely not enough. There can be so much knowledge about a particular job which one should take a long time and effort to learn how to perform it gradually. Without formal education, workers may take many more years to understand even the basic concepts in their work. One may also realize that he had wasted many years doing things that he could not understand through practical work only. Besides, there are jobs which are sophisticated enough to make its prospect employee to learn an abundant of background knowledge before they can start working in real life. For instance, a doctor can be a good example here. It is impossible for people to become a good doctor without knowing before hand basic medical knowledge. One mistake can cost a life of a human being. There is obviously so much to learn in formal education before he or she begins to work practically.

In conclusion, it is very important to master practical skills as it helps us to work efficiently, but acquiring theoretical knowledge is also extremely vital to any work. One should try to acquire practical skills and working experience besides learning working theory to be more competitive in such a day-to-day changing job market today.

Should education be teaching skills relevant to the future job market? With so much basic, needed information to cover in most curriculums, should schools afford to integrate career-oriented education into their courses?

Nevertheless, the school environment and the work environment are very different, and education institutions usually do not focus on preparing students for the eventual work world.

Maintain a positive attitude and keep your mind from flooding with negative, fearful possibilities.

I will never find another job that I like. I will end up homeless, alone, and live on the streets. Such thinking reflects a failing of relying on the Lord.

Prepare mentally, when and if the day arrives, you will leave your employer with a more positive attitude. This better ensures that if the business can rehire at a later time, you will be on the call list…
