The world was changing rapidly and silently in a way that the changes went unnoticed until the COVID-19 pandemic struck and accelerated business transformation into a virtual the world. The change has made businesses especially the hiring personnel to rethink about the skills needed when hiring. The same has affected job seekers who are figuring how to reinvent themselves in a rapidly changing job market to meet the expectations the employers and remain competitive.

In response to that dilemma, this article offers insights to the qualities that will place you at a better position to secure your dream job in the post COVID-19 job market.

1. Tech savviness

The digital transformation of businesses witnessed is more likely to stay in the post Covid world. It has proven that businesses can virtually operate in the digital space. Meetings have been conducted online via platforms such as Zoom, and the social media has been used to connect consumers. You need to be comfortable using such tools effectively. Having skills as search engine optimization, search engine marketing, email campaigns, or building webpages makes you an asset.

2. Adaptability and flexibility to change.

Are you capable of adapting to the changing needs of the organization or does change scare you? If you are the type of a person who cannot adapt quickly to change, chances are that you may not be fit to be part of an organization. It is either you bend, or you break. In most cases, employers are look for personnel who can bend to the will of change.

3. Data Literacy

In a digitalized world, there is need to translate the raw data into information that can be used to predict the current trends and future projections. of customer. In order to serve customers with better products, companies are in need of people who can make sense of the existing data to enable the company to make the right decisions.

4. Emotional Intelligence

The ability to be aware of, express, and control your emotions and be aware of other’s emotions as well puts you at a better situation to make sound rational decisions. Emotional intelligence allows one to act with composure and self-control especially in moments of a crisis. Employers are likely to test how you can respond to stress. 

5. Creativity and Innovation.

In a changing economic landscape, consumers are looking for products, which respond to their immediate needs at a specific time. Consequently, employers are looking to hire people who amidst restrictions can invent creative ways of keeping the business going when some of the businesses are closing shop. The businesses that have survived the pandemic are those that have come up with creative ways to ensure their continuity, and more businesses are likely to hire those who embody such qualities.

6. Proactivity and willingness to learn

Employers are starving for the kind of professionals who can take charge and lead without waiting to be told what to do. Being proactive is a skill that shows that you are not clueless about an organization’s culture and the way they conduct their businesses.

In addition to these, there are soft skills that should be inherent to every job seeker. Such skills include good communication skills both written and verbal, self-motivation, and leadership skills. However, according to the World Economic Forum, 35% of the skills deemed essential today will change in just five years; therefore, it is prudent to commit yourself to learning.
