Skills that help you increase your opportunities

Your employment opportunities depend on your own skills.

For a long time, people who are well-trained and have degrees, especially university degrees or higher degrees, haven’t have to worry much about employment opportunities. Academic learning in school is almost enough for them to work for life, which basically does not have to be updated with much new knowledge; because new knowledge in each field does not increase much after a few decades.

However the situation has changed, science and technology has expanded, making new information in every field increase day by day. A person who has graduated from college but does not update his skills quickly will not be able to meet their job requirements due to lack of knowledge.
Education is also open to a larger crowd in the form of learning in school or distance learning, intensive or in-service study etc… so many people can be proffesionally trained, which leads to and getting a job is increasingly difficult.
The nature of work becomes increasingly complex, requiring professionalism in many areas, the workload of one single task can be very large with such a short time to complete, so a person can hardly finish the task on right time, quality requirement cannot be met, so it takes many people in one group to perform one task perfectly. Teamwork has its own nature. Unlike the case where a group of people work together in one place and have their own independence, teamwork requires interaction, sharing (information and tasks), companionship and muatual understanding. Is it difficult to find a job? Yes, but not quite so. It is difficult, because you have to cultivate many skills in addition to your academic knowledge. However it is not entirely difficult because there are ways to overcome this challenge.
