Back To Work | Make Your Way Up: Identify And Bridge Your Skills Gap | San Diego

About this event

In order to find your dream jobs, you must get closer to being an ideal candidates. One aspect of this is to bridge any gaps between your own skill set and those of the perfect candidate.

Educate yourself on the job market. Each job is different, but it will provide a general idea of any gaps that are there. When reviewing job posts, pay attention to the details. What is actually a requirement and what is preferred? Did the company quantify what are they looking for? Compare these details to your own background. Do you have any transferable skills? How about internship or volunteer work that is applicable? While it might not be ideal, you may be able to present your experience in a way that meets the company’s need.

Look for ways you can fill gaps while working and/or looking for your next job opportunity. This can be done by volunteering, taking a temporary work assignment, enrolling in classes or earning a certification.
