Work readiness

 Quick Summary

Employers are interested in potential employees who are ‘work ready.’ This means that as well as hard skills such as education and training, they have skills like teamwork, problem solving and flexibility. These skills are also known as soft or transferable skills. You might be using these skills in many parts of your life already, perhaps in your community, through volunteering or in your family. Your values and beliefs can be an important part of your job readiness, for example showing respect to others, treating people fairly and trying to do the best job you can, are all soft skills that are attractive to employers.
