Speak to anybody looking to hire staff and you will discover that post-pandemic job uncertainty has resulted in a global shake-up – everybody is either looking to get back into work having lost their job, or people are looking for something more stable. 

Even the most steady of employers have found that they probably couldn’t pay all of their staff, resulting in furlough schemes across the globe. If you are one of the many people looking to get back into work, or if you are hoping to find a role that offers you more stability than you currently enjoy, you may need to know some software skills that can boost your resume and increase your chances of finding that dream job.

CRM stands for customer relationship management. It’s not one thing, but rather it is many complementary pieces of software that knit together to form one complete suite of customisable technologies. Companies can tailor their CRM software to include things like a better anticipation of customer needs, a better understanding of customer segmentation, easy to access customer data, and up-to-date privacy protections. 

Learning how to attract customers, complete the sales cycle, and retain those customers is a skill many employers value highly. Without it, you may not fully understand the sales process, and that means your performance may differ significantly from someone who has learned about CRM. 

Social Media Skills

A long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away, today’s social media platforms were all new. They interacted, sometimes, making it easy for users to make their shared content visible across platforms. You could even track many different platforms in free software. But then decisions were made and walls were built. Each social media platform became an empire.

If you want to get ahead in today’s job market, an understanding of social media for business will always help you stand out against the crowd. It’s not enough to say simply that you know how to post on your timeline or you are familiar with tagging friends in your images. That’s basic stuff. You need to know how to use the in-built tools to identify and build an audience.

Employers may not need you to actually take over their social media channels, but being as these skills are in need every day, it can help you to make a great first impression at an interview

UX Design Skills

You don’t want to be a graphic designer or a web developer. You want to be a teacher, or a chef, or a musician in a touring jazz band. It doesn’t matter. Whatever your profession, your company is online. 

Knowledge of user experience (UX) means you “get it” when it comes to your employer’s web presence. Design and implementation skills will always help you to gain the edge.
