The wide-ranging and striving survey has been conducted covering all the skills required by employers (including 87,000) in the UK. This can be considered as a motivation for the present situation where people prefer selecting their jobs according to their preference rather than selecting whatever job is available to them (National careers service, 2015a). Thus, people can select a job and improve their required skills with the job rather than accepting whatever job is available for them.
Job areas with the most vacancies
In this review, nearly 23% of companies’ jobs were categorized under the ‘hard-to-fill’ category. There can be several motives for a job to become hard to fill, the highest usual motive was recognized as the absence of qualifications, skills or experience by the candidates. The categories of jobs where companies stated that they recognized it most problematic to recognize the abilities they wanted were in the skillful jobs for example chefs, electricians and plumbers. The occupation extents wherein companies stated a specific trouble receiving expert people are restaurants and hotels, retail and wholesale, construction and manufacturing mainly (National careers service, 2015b). The above survey recognized that the occupation categories in the premier demand are related to the professional occupations such as investment analysts and IT technicians. For each 100 persons employed in these categories of occupations, more than five vacancies were recognized.
This proposes that having technical knowledge or specialist and professional experiences upsurges the probabilities of creating a demand. Related experts were most vastly required after in occupation extents such as social, restaurants and hotels, community and private service actions and business services. Mining can be considered as other job areas that has high number of vacancies as a percentage of the total personnel in the UK (more than 7%). In addition, sales and the customer service employees in the electricity and construction fields also have higher demand (10%). Companies in the public administration and education also have created several occupation opportunities though there is higher shortage in candidate skills (National careers service, 2015b).
By considering all above facts, one common decision can be made that achieving skills in terms of practical skills, specialist knowledge, professional qualifications and technical skills can be named as one of the best things that a candidate can do to make sure the candidate is in the correct demand in the future.
