“Work in Progress” What about Work and Progress? (Part 2)

1. Flexibility/Adaptability
Chances are, your job will change substantially over the course of your career, be it new legislation, a change in clients or changing your role within the business. Your employer will want people who can adapt quickly, juggle multiple tasks, work extremely hard, be accountable and work with a variety of people.

2. Problem Solving
In order to succeed in the workplace you need to be able to effectively use your initiative, evaluate situations, break them down and consider the most effective way to resole them. This includes recognising long-term consequences and again, accountability.

3. Creativity
Employers want people with fresh ideals that will help develop and expand their businesses. Always show yourself to be innovative, intuitive and imaginative.

4. Interpersonal Skills
It is common knowledge that employers want people who are dedicated, hard working and reliable. Your ultimate goal is to convince them that you possess these qualities and you have got what it takes.

5. Team Work
Team work is all about being able to operate smoothly and efficiently within a group. That requires leadership and decision making skills, as well as the ability to follow instructions and play your role within a group.

If you are unable to achieve the career path/progression you desire in your current employment, then maybe change would be the right move for you. Being employed by an employer who recognises hard work is always a fundamental requirement!

“If you can’t fly, then run; if you can’t run, then walk; if you can’t walk, then crawl; but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward” – Martin Luther King
