THE SKILLS NEEDED FOR A SUCCESSFUL CAREER IN 2023
The new year of 2023 has already arrived and we all expect new and better opportunities for personal development and career growth to open up before us. While we have sent a turbulent year filled with challenges, fears of crises and recession, in 2023 we look ahead and strongly hope for greater stability and predictability both economically and in the job market.
To remain competitive in 2023, as in every year before, we need to not only maintain our soft and hard skills, but also upgrade with new knowledge in different areas.
In connection with the new expectations of employers in the rapidly evolving business environment, we share part of an article on the website Karieri.bg, as it details everything we will need for a successful career in 2023.
According to Karieri.bg’s analysis, a balance of knowledge related to various technological platforms, artificial intelligence, software and good digital literacy will be needed for a rapid development. General digital literacy is listed as a top priority for recruiters. It’s everywhere and everyone has some knowledge of it. These days, most professions use a lot of tech tools and employers want to know that their employees will be able to handle them. Digital literacy is defined as a soft skill as it is less related to one specific platform and more to the ability to learn and adapt to new technologies, writes Dilyana Krasimirova in the analysis.
For employers, it is important that employees and job applicants have four key qualities to demonstrate their digital skills:
- knowledge of existing and most used technologies or platforms;
- the ability to communicate clearly in an online environment;
- the ability to present ideas online;
- managing teams using technology tools.
We can define digital literacy as a person’s ability to use IT and digital technology to find, evaluate, create and communicate information, according to the Karieri.bg article. Most employers consider a candidate to have these qualities if they can conduct thorough online research, which they can then analyze and evaluate, be able to create a range of different digital documents and use digital communication systems effectively.
