Free “Future Of Skills” Tool – Great for Hiring

Simplify your search for job candidates with this new, free tool… Future of Skills. Think about how you do your job today: the skills you need, the technology you use, your day-to-day practices. Now think back to 2015 and consider what the job called for back then. If you’re like most people, you’ll find some meaningful differences. Having an outdated knowledge of necessary skills for job positions can lead to endless interviews with no perfect candidate insight.

This new tool, the Future of Skills, is a great resource for companies looking to find qualified candidates. Employers can outline current skills for job positions at the click of a button. Simply enter the country, the industry, and the job position. See the list of relative skills and compare the 2015 list to the more current 2021 list. This can also be a helpful resource when writing hiring ads on a platform such as LinkedIn. If you know what the current skills required for the position are now called and what they encompass, then you use that terminology to attract the best candidates. For example, if you were looking to hire a software engineer some of the main skills needed in 2015 are JavaScript and C#. But if you look at 2021 you will notice that javascript is not as needed as react.js is. When hiring, include react.js instead of javascript. Click here to use the new tool. What differences did you find? Will you use this to modify your search? If so, drop us a line and let us know.
