Transcript of "Insight into Developing Digital and Functional skills of those seeking employment, and in the workplace"

  1. 1. Lyn Lall, (RSC EM Advisor), Carolyn Lewis (Vocational Innovation Ltd) Developing Digital Employability Skills
  2. 2. Learning Objectives  Raise awareness of how recruitment trends have changed and the skills required by tutors to support learners into employment  Raise awareness of digital skills used in the workplace and how these link to Functional Skills.  Consider how digital and functional skills can be developed in a training environment using digital solutions used in the workplace.
  3. 3. Poll: Employability Skills Training Please answer one of the following: A. We cover all the above in our delivery B. We cover some of the above in our delivery C. We do not include any of the above in our delivery Inclusion in Employability Skills training: • How to use social networking for job seeking • How technology is being used in the connected workplace • Using cloud technology in the workplace • Using voice over internet technology in the workplace • Workplace online responsibilities
  4. 4. May 2014: 975,000 young people aged 16-24 are unemployed.
  5. 5. “By 2015, 90% of jobs will need e-skills. Virtually all young people are familiar with electronic games and social networking and might be considered as ‘digital natives’, but they are not ‘digitally competent’ in the sense that they do not know sufficiently how to use the digital world in a business context”.
  6. 6. The Recruitment Landscape 77% of recruiters regularly search the internet for information on prospective employees prior to hiring. 87% of the 100 million LinkedIn users are using it for recruitment. 94% of recruiters use social media to support recruitment. 42% of recruiters have reconsidered a candidate based on content viewed in a social profile, leading to both positive and negative re- assessments Recruiters use Applicant Tracking Software to find CVs to match a job profile.
  7. 7. Why should job seekers be on the web? An online presence to supplement your CV definitely enhances your offerings as a candidate. You want to have a digital presence on the web so that recruiters can find you. The web provides the opportunity to showcase your talents, personality, style, and interests. It shows employers you are internet savvy and have a good understanding of social media.
  8. 8. Use of Social Media Using the pen tool please mark the box of each social media platform that you use.
  9. 9. Keyword: a word or concept of great significance Keywords are the backbone to your CV: without them, your CV won’t get a look-in. Make sure you use the right keywords to get your CV noticed. Jobsite.co.uk Having the right keywords in your social profile is critical to making yourself visible to recruiters and hiring managers. Without the right keywords, your profiles (and you) are invisible, because your profile may never be seen by a recruiter. Jobhunt.org The Importance of Keywords
  10. 10. Profiles CV/Letter KEYWORDS RecruiterJob Seeker
  11. 11. Skills for Online Job Seekers Create complete well developed profiles that are keyword rich. Research the keywords that are the best fit for your skills and qualifications as found in job adverts. A headline of your profile should be that you are job seeking. Follow people and companies who are in the industry you are interested in.
  12. 12. Skills for Online Job Seekers Join relevant groups and lists to research what is going on in your industry and to participate in discussions. Share interesting topics from people in your industry – it shouldn’t be about self-promotion. Recruiters have to be able to find you, so your profile must be public.
  13. 13. Don’ts for Online Job Seekers Send a non-customised CV to a recruiter without the keywords associated with the job being applied for. Make your CV available to recruiters as a pdf as Applicant Tracking Systems cannot scan and read the content. Contact recruiters or companies on social networking with comments such as: Can you help me find a job? Do you have any job openings that fit my profile? Can you please send me ??’s email address / phone number? Have any errors in your profile, CV and covering letter.
  14. 14. Use keywords to search for employers. Join relevant Groups. Get recommendations. Create complete well developed profiles that are keyword rich. Job Hunting Using LinkedIn
  15. 15. Use keywords to search for employers. Join relevant Groups. Get recommendations. Create complete well developed profiles that are keyword rich. Job Hunting Using LinkedIn Example
  16. 16. Job Hunting Using Twitter #UKJobs, #Jobsuk, #JobSearch, #JobOpening, #JobListing, #HR, #Recruiting, #Hiring, #Employment, #ApplyNow Use hash tags to search for jobs. Use Twitter as jumping off point to more detailed information Use Twitter lists to store useful companies Use Twitter apps created by recruiters
  17. 17. Stand out from the Crowd “I had a personal website and blog (on which I posted about my profession). My current boss looked it up, printed out blog posts, and brought them to my interview to discuss my opinions, my writing, my voice, etc. I think they may have helped me land the job! A well-maintained personal website is an advantage”.
