In life you continue learning new skills and there is always something you can learn to make an everyday life task simpler/easier, so why not transfer this in to your professional life. As we all work in ever changing markets and the competition for jobs is continually heating up, most people ask themselves what can they do to stay relevant and how can they get that new job or pay rise.

Well the answer to this question is up-skilling. It gives you all the ammunition you need for your professional / personal growth; up-skilling is a great way to increase your own motivation and results in new doors opening for professional development and allows for flexibility within the working environment.

When up-skilling you need think objectively and decide what exactly you are aiming to achieve, make sure that you are timely and relevant with your decisions.

Key signs it’s time to up-skill;

  • You haven’t had a pay rise in the last year
  • You weren’t satisfied with your last pay increase
  • Your role is not challenging you enough  is enough or starting to feel stagnant
  • You have changed job function
  • You are feeling left behind in the market place

So don’t sell yourself short, up-skill soon and start on your journey to greater personal development and self enablement, which will hold you in good stead to compete in today’s job market. Remember up-skilling and career development is not only about moving forward but it can also involve lateral progressions, so be ready to embrace all opportunity; big, small, obvious and subtle.
