What Skills are Employers Seeking?


Much has been written about the skills employers are looking for.  In most cases, certifications or higher education is absolutely necessary.  Employers expect that you acquired the knowledge and understanding of the major you studied in college.  However, most employers find that the key skills for most jobs are softer and include:

Problem identification and solving skills

Decision-making ability

Good judgment

Analytical skills

Communication skills

Reason

Do you have these skills?  If so, show them off in your resume and provide examples of them at your next interview.

For more information, contact Career Services at 303.458.3508 or careers@regis.edu and meet with a Career Counselor today!

Equal Pay Day 2015

equalpay

The next Equal Pay Day is Tuesday, April 14, 2015. This date symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.  Equal Pay Day was originated by the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men’s and women’s wages.

Next Equal Pay Day: Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Wear RED in Equal Pay Day

to symbolize how far women

and minorities are “in the red” with their pay! 

Despite passage of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, which requires that men and women in the same work place be given equal pay for equal work, the “gender gap” in pay persists. Full-time women workers’ earnings are only about 78% of their male counterparts’ earnings. For women of color, the gap is even worse.

Equal pay is not just a woman’s issue — but a family issue as well. Women make up nearly half of the U.S. labor force and are a growing number of breadwinners in their families. When women are not paid fairly, not only do they suffer, but so do their families and our economy.

Tech Skills in Demand

Tech Skills in Demand 


According to a recent assessment performed by LMA Consulting Group, the following technical skills are most in demand among the manufacturing and logistic career fields:

  • Capacity Planning
  • Operations Management
  • IT/ERP
  • Demand Planning/Forecasting
  • Lean/Six Sigma Process Improvement
  • Inventory Management
  • Project Management

Almost 80% of employers responding to this survey have found issues in identifying candidates possessing these skills sets. To further explore developing experience in these areas, look at professional organizations, certifications, seminars, workshops. Gaining experience with in-demand tech skills can greatly increase your appeal to employers.
