Are you a job seeker looking for employment? Millions of people across the country are in the same situation you are. You have been out of the workforce for sometime, and now you want to get back in.

Getting back into the workforce after a lengthy break can be challenging and even intimidating, but do not let that deter you from job seeking. Assess your workforce skills and then reach out to those who can help place you into a job that fits your skills and needs.
Take a Skills and Education Inventory
Technical skills are important for employers when considering a potential candidate. These include anything that a prospect has learned and/or successfully performed on the job, and the employer will gauge this by asking two key questions. These are:
- What can you do for our organisation?
- What problems can you solve?
You need to be able to answer these questions easily and convincingly. Make a list of every skill or workplace experience that you feel confident in performing on your next job. These can include using office software or technology, expertise with practical tools of the trade, or customer service experience. You should categorise these in terms of your experience and level of confidence, which will be a tremendous help in figuring out which jobs to pursue and how to interview for them.
In years past, most employers did not discuss what have come to be known as “soft skills.” They assumed that all potential employees understood concepts such as punctuality, dressing appropriately, working as a team, or completing individual tasks, etc. This has changed, however, and in today’s market, both technical and soft skills are highly important. Always mention these soft skills, and describe how you put them into practice, whenever you interview for a job.
Next, make a list of the jobs and tasks that interest you. Match the skills you have to the jobs that you would like to do. If your skill set is lacking for some positions, training may be available through the employer or through a low cost third party program.
Reach Out to an Experienced Recruitment Agency
Once you have taken an honest assessment of your skill set and listed the jobs that you want to perform, you should reach out to an experienced recruitment agency. While many agencies work in the job matching field, they do not all perform at the same level.
The best recruitment agencies do not simply match individuals up with work and leave it at that. Premier organisations seek to establish long term relationships with businesses and workers. They create contacts with a wide range of businesses of every size in a variety of fields, then leverage those to create the best fit possible for all clients. Maintaining constant lines of communication with potential employees and client organisations is key to making sure matches happen quickly.
