The Central Florida economy is a highly competitive job market, so it’s important that you have the skills employers are looking for if you want to land one of those Central Florida jobs. As a full-service staffing company in Polk County, KB Staffing works closely with employers in Lakeland, Winter Haven, and surrounding towns, and we know what they’re looking for.
The Skills to Pay the Bills
No matter what field you work in, it’s important that you have the skills that employers are looking for. At KB Staffing, there are two broad categories of skill sets that get requested on a daily basis: soft skills and tech skills.
- Soft Skills: Soft skills are in demand because they are the skills necessary to get along well with co-workers and be able to adapt to changes in the work environment. When we talk about “soft skills,” we’re considering a candidate’s communication skills, mental flexibility, ability to work as part of a team, self-motivation, and other types of work habits that will benefit any employer.
- Tech Skills: The other set of skills in high demand are tech skills. So many industries now rely on computers and other types of modern technology that it’s no surprise that employers want to hire people who can not only operate the equipment effectively but can also troubleshoot when necessary. Basic programming skills, data engineering, and design skills are very desirable in the modern job market.
If you think you are lacking in either of these areas, then you might want to consider pursuing some type of training to boost your confidence in these skills. Developing greater proficiency with people and technology will benefit your career immensely.
