Versatility Is Key to Opening Up Employment Opportunities

Here at KB Staffing, we talk to quite a lot of job candidates, and they range from barely qualified to amazingly adaptable to any position. Of course, we want to help everyone that we can, so for the less qualified candidates out there, we offer support services and motivation to cultivate their employable skills so as to make them more appealing to the Polk County managers who are looking for help. Increasing your versatility as a worker is always a good idea, no matter how many skills you already have under your belt.

How Being a Versatile Employee Can Benefit You
Regardless of whether you have years of experience or you are just starting your job search, versatility can make you more attractive to employers. Why? You may not have x, y, or z skills or you may not know Excel, for example, but you can instantly boost your chance of getting hired if you’re eager to learn, quick to pick up skills and willing to work the more unpopular shifts until you get your foot in the door.

KB Staffing has a few tips on how to be more versatile and adaptable.

  • Attitude matters! Keep a positive attitude and be willing to accept new challenges. This will always help you grow and learn.
  • Be open to learning. Your co-workers and supervisors are a wealth of knowledge. Use that to your advantage and learn as much as you can. They also have different ways of completing familiar tasks. You may find that their lessons help you improve your job performance and understanding of processes.
  • Flexibility is a highly valued trait. Always be ready and willing to switch roles when needed. Consider the needs of the team and accept cross-training whenever it’s offered.

Seize the opportunities you get to increase your job skills and knowledge base. Improve your soft skills, too, such as interpersonal communication, time management, organization, and self-motivation. This type of personal development will always make you more appealing to a wider variety of employers.
