With many companies hiring for positions and the job market has changed overall due to the pandemic, entering into a new industry can seem difficult. Fortunately, it’s likely your existing skill-set can help you in more ways than you think.

Recognize Your Skills

Start with identifying your current skills. These skills can come from your current job, how you relate to others, hobbies, how you manage tasks, and any other learned skills. To help identify these maybe write down a list of things you’d say you’re skilled in and then categorize them by the following:

  • Functional Traits: this includes skills such as problem-solving, basic bookkeeping, customer service, communication, and more. These skills are typically the most transferable and what most employers list on job descriptions.
  • Personality Traits: This is how you are as a person, are you organized, a great listener, attentive, punctual, etc. These are great skills to showcase for many different positions and can help differentiate you from other applicants.
  • Learned Knowledge: Maybe you took a course in Microsoft in high school, or you have a degree of some sort, learned knowledge is exactly what it says, knowledge that you’ve learned or studied.

Next Steps: Finding That Next Opportunity

Once you’ve identified your skills and have categorized them, you will have a better understanding of yourself and can match your skills up to what employers are looking for.

Start by looking at some job boards and reading job descriptions, see anything that matches yours? Try to find positions with as many matches as possible to increase your chances of being hired. Be sure to broaden your horizons and look at positions that are similar to your skill-set, some may use different descriptors and synonyms so look out for those too. You may be surprised at how many positions you qualify for based on your current skills.

If you don’t see jobs matching your current skills, view this as an opportunity to enhance what you know by getting more training or certifications. Moving into a new industry can seem difficult but it can also lead to exciting new opportunities that will provide financial stability and personal fulfillment. Identifying your skills and identifying the gaps is a great way to get started on a new career path.

December 10, 2021

It’s hard to believe that 2022 is already knocking on our doors, but in just mere days it will be here. With the last couple of years showing drastic changes in the workforce, many hiring and employment trends should continue and even accelerate as we enter the new year. Here are what experts are saying you can expect to see in your workplace over the coming year.

Resignations Should Continue to Rise in the Workplace

One trend that is likely to continue is the rise of workplace resignations. Worker resignations are creating shortages and many experts expect to see a great increase of employee power. Employees will likely start to require more incentives in order to be employed. This includes better pay, better benefits, better work-life balance, and more in order to retain and attract new employees.

Healthcare Positions Will Continue to Be in High Demand

It is likely we will see a trend in hiring for healthcare professionals, healthcare supporting fields, and construction as many of these positions opened up as a result of the pandemic. This will allow for less competition in these fields and better opportunities to negotiate benefits and salary.

Remote Work is Here to Stay

We will also likely see an increase and continuation of remote employment in certain industries, some even moving to more permanent remote positions with the ability to hire anyone from anywhere.

Firms Will Be Under Pressure to Stay Competitive for Good Employees

For the most part, this has been a beneficial time for many employees searching for new positions and many are starting to recognize that they may be undervalued in their current roles. Higher demand and increasing pay-rates have lead many to seek positions that provide an increase in pay and benefits. While a boon to workers with in-demand skills, this trend has put pressure on firms looking to hire and retain good employees. Look for this trend to continue throughout 2022.

If you’re searching for a new position in the healthcare and construction fields or and employer looking to enhance your current staff, please check out our website to view all of the high quality and competitive opportunities available at Condustrial.com.

Do you lack motivation during this time of the year? Maybe you dread another Monday rolling in and are mentally checked out by Wednesday. The holidays can be a stressful time and a loss of workplace motivation is understandable as many have family visiting or upcoming vacations planned. But it is important to continue to focus on tasks that need to be completed before the holidays. To help you navigate this season, we’ve put together a few ways to keep you motivated during the upcoming holidays.

Start With Small Goals: Oftentimes you have a large list to tackle and things can get overwhelming very quickly which can make you want to push the task of and do it later. Or maybe a project you had will be time-consuming or puzzling. Rather than throwing the whole task list together and thinking about how much you can get done of the overall large goal, try breaking it down into smaller “bite-sized” amounts of work. This allows you to feel rewarded more than once along the journey while still being able to get work done. This will also leave you feeling less stressed and overwhelmed at the end of the day. Just remember to get it done and to prioritize what needs to be completed first. 

Focus On Relieving Stress: During your time off from work try focusing on doing tasks that make you feel relaxed. Try that new yoga studio you’ve been eyeing or read a good book. Whatever you like to do to feel less stressed, put some attention on that. This will help you leave work at work and think about other things when you have your own time. And while you’re at it, make this a habit to get used to. In the end, you’ll feel much less stressed both in and out of work. 

Set A Schedule:  Jumping off of setting aside time for yourself is making a schedule. Try to plan out your day ahead of time and stick to it to make your workflow more efficient. Do you typically finish your day after you’ve clocked out? Try setting a hard stop time while sticking to this schedule as a way to leave work where it belongs and not bring it home with you. You need some time to unplug from work, so let yourself have the time. The tasks will be there tomorrow. 

Reward Yourself: Remember those small goals we talked about earlier? Try rewarding yourself for completing those. Maybe it’s a stop at your favorite ice cream shop or a new set of headphones, do something that makes you feel happy, and reward yourself even for the small stuff. This will push you to work harder knowing you’ll be getting something out of it in the end. 

Allow Yourself to Focus: It can be easy to get distracted from the tasks at hand, especially if you’re a procrastinator, so utilize the tips above and allow yourself to get in the zone. Sometimes you just need to know yourself and know what will help you be the most productive, so listen to your mind and let the workflow flow. Even if you have a hard time pushing yourself to get in the zone, try the 10-minute rule of focusing on a task for just 10 minutes and then taking a break.

We hope you can utilize these tips to feel motivated in your workplace to get you through the holidays.  An important thing to remember is that the work will likely be there tomorrow, so don’t stress yourself out by rushing, leaving you feeling stressed and leading to burnout. Rather, take time to be intentional about how to approach your work and you’ll be better off in the long run. Happy Holidays from Condustrial!

Upskilling is an industry term that is becoming more and more popular, but what does it actually mean and how can you benefit?

For starters, upskilling in the industrial sector “refers to the process of individuals learning a new skill,” according to Forbes.com. Essentially a way for an employee to learn a new skill in an effort to advance them in their career or increase eligibility.

Technology has created new possibilities that can be fully realized only by a modernized workforce. That means the workforce must learn new skills and competencies that are required for new and/or changing jobs.

Forbes

Upskilling is gaining popularity as older generations, specifically Baby Boomers, are starting to leave their positions and retiring, leaving open availability to typically less skilled younger generations as creating a skills gap. In addition, the workforce has changed over the years and younger generations are often not given the same opportunities to study and learn about certain professions, they, as well as their employers, are taking matters into their own hands through upskilling and participating in training sessions to help advance and further their careers.

Scenarios Where Upskilling Can Lead to New Opportunites

  • Personnel looks to promote from within: more skills means more opportunities for growth in your profession
  • Increased automation in the workforce: being able to integrate and work with new technologies can lead to more responsibilities and earnings
  • Upskilling allows you to seperate from the pack: the more diverse your skill-set, the better you will be at addressing your employers present and future needs

Why Increasing Your Skillset is Important

So, aside from the potential to learn more and further your career, why else dedicate time to learning a new set of skills? Dedicating time towards enriching your skills can earn you a raise as you’re now more equipped for the position, it can make you more eligible for a promotion, and it can even help you make a career change and learn more about a career path that you’re interested in. Overall, it’s a great way to improve yourself and give you more power to negotiate.

With so many resources such as Skillshare, Udemy, and more it is easy to upskill in any industry. It’s best to take some time to learn what skills would be most beneficial for your specific career path and how you can learn those skills.

We as humans inevitably will make mistakes, and although even a small accident can have a large impact, beating yourself up over a mistake is not the best way to handle it. Instead, we’ve pulled together a list of best practices to follow if you’ve made a mistake in the workplace to turn it into a learning opportunity. 

Allow Yourself to Feel

Oftentimes when we’ve made a mistake we feel terrible. We are so upset and want to do what we can to make it right, we may even feel embarrassed or worry about termination for the mistake. It’s ok to sit in that feeling for a minute to gather your thoughts, but don’t hesitate too much to act on your mistake. Try to reach out to a manager or supervisor to address the situation and remind yourself that it’s not the end of the world. 

Figure Out What Happened

If someone else had made the same mistake and came to you for a solution, what questions would you want to know? You’d want to figure out what happened, how it happened, what damage has been caused, and what can be done to prevent this in the future. So ask yourself those same questions so that you can begin to come up with a solution to offer to your supervisor. 

Try To Fix It 

It may not always be possible to do so, but try to see if there is a way to rectify the situation, if not try to think of solutions that can prevent something like this from happening again that can be used as a teaching tool for your coworkers. 

Have A Meeting With Your Supervisor

Once you’ve assessed the situation, without letting too much time go by, go and privately speak with your supervisor and be honest as to what has happened. Now will be a good time to offer up those solutions we discussed on how to fix or prevent the mistake. Don’t try to beat around the bush of responsibility, instead be factual and open about what happened. At the end of the day it’s likely your supervisor has been in your shoes and knows what it’s like to make a mistake, maybe even that same mistake, so try not to expect the worst outcome. 

Change Your Strategy

Now that you’ve made the mistake and have put some thought into how it happened and what could be done to prevent it, implement that change in your day-to-day to prevent the same mistake from happening again. 

Overall, mistakes are not the end of the world, and most employers, supervisors, and managers expect mistakes to a certain level of degree. So don’t get too down on yourself, mistakes happen, but what you learn from them and how you change after them is what is important.

In times of disaster, such as Hurricane Ida that just tore through southern Lousiana last over the weekend, you realize just how destructive nature can be and how much situations like these disrupt your life. Over a million people lost power due to this powerful storm and this happens often with major weather events. That’s what makes the job of an electrician so important. When the power goes out from major weather events it can be out for several weeks in some cases which can be detrimental to pretty much anyone that relies on power, that’s where the skilled electricians come into play. Often they’ll travel from around the country working long hours for several weeks at a time to get power back up and running for those who need it the most. And while becoming an electrician takes many hours of training for your safety and the safety of others in the field, we’ve come up with a list of steps you can take to get you there.

Step 1: Get your high school diploma or GED. Most electricians positions require a high school diploma or GED. Electricians need to have some basic math and science skills to be able to properly perform most job duties so be sure you have this in place prior to your search of becoming an electrician.

Step 2: Seek our formal training. Whether you’d prefer to do a program at a local trade school or technical college or an apprenticeship, spend some time doing research on which option best suits your needs. Oftentimes you can seek an apprenticeship that is a paid position where you will earn less at the cost of being able to learn hands-on, but this path can take a bit longer. If you decide to go to a trade school or technical college, be prepared to have to pay for courses or take out student loans to complete your schooling. After your training is done here you’ll receive a certificate and will be ready to enter into an entry-level position.

Step 3: You will likely need to get licensed. Depending on your state and local requirements you will likely need to get licensed in your skill-set. To get licensed you’ll have to take a knowledge test that will showcase your knowledge on electrical theory and real-life application, you’ll likely also be examined on local electric and building codes so be sure to study what is local to your area.

Step 4: Seek employment. There are likely thousands of opportunities across the country and probably within your local area that is hiring for electricians of all sorts. Probably the most common type of electrician is residential, but you can also explore other options as well, such as a lineman, but this does require additional schooling/training. It may take you a few years to become a master at your craft, but you’ll be able to advance along the way.

Electricians are extremely important to every household in the country in providing proper service so that your heating and cooling systems can function, or so that you can binge-watch your favorite streaming service. Whatever you need electricity for, be sure to thank your electrician for taking the time and dedication to get there. If you’re seeking an apprenticeship or entry-mid level position in this field visit our website to see available positions in your area.

Renewable Energy has been a large focus for many industries in the past few years with dozens of companies focusing on hydroelectric and solar cars, batteries, energy sources, and more; it’s likely that many major Construction companies will be moving in a more environmentally friendly direction as well. New technologies are emerging regularly to combat global warming and other environmental concerns. These technologies are allowing the construction industry to shift in a more green direction.

A major factor that many in the industry are taking into consideration is CO2 emissions from construction equipment. Power tools, materials, debris, new development, transportation, and more all play a role in the release of CO2 emissions. In fact, according to The Guardian, it’s estimated that 50 tons of CO2 emissions are generated to build one new house. And with millions of those and even larger scale buildings being constructed around the country, it’s clear that something must be done to focus on more renewable resources.

So what can the industry do to save the environment? The current push is for industry leaders to put more emphasis on solar, hydroelectric, wind, and other renewable energy sources.

 Solar energy is nothing new and can even be found in something as basic as a light that stakes into the ground to project on the sidewalk. And while many homeowners and businesses are adding solar panels to their homes during and after construction, companies are also now starting to utilize more of this resource in the construction of these homes and businesses. In fact companies like Volvo recently released a line of solar-powered equipment and heavy machinery. Since these machines typically require a lot of oil to operate, this is certainly a step in the right direction to reducing carbon emissions. 

In addition to solar, wind energy is becoming more widely popular, especially in the electric industry. While solar power is much more flexible than wind, many sites are now incorporating wind turbines as a main method of power. While wind may turbines may not be so easy to transport and use on the go, like solar, wind energy is extremely inexpensive at a mere 1-2 cents per kilowatt-hour whereas some states charge upwards of 20 cents per kilowatt-hour for standard electricity. Due to the savings many construction sites and moving towards wind energy turbines to power their sites while awaiting electricity rather than using gas-powered generators.

A less commonly used renewable resource in the industry is hydroelectric. While hydroelectric is increasing in popularity in other industries, it’s a more difficult resource to use with construction sites. Similar to wind energy it is not easily set up for temporary uses and also a water source would need to be nearby, but companies are still able to feed off the power if a plant is nearby. Since water is typically easy to find, since it falls from the sky in most places, it’s also important to consider how that water can be recycled during the construction of the home. For instance, rain barrels can be implemented at the beginning of construction to reuse water for the purpose of construction, such as setting concrete or placing landscaping. The barrels can then be implemented in the completed construction to power irrigation systems and maintain the landscaping around the site.

Overall, renewable resources must be considered where and when available for all construction sites in an effort to aid climate control and reduce carbon emissions from the construction industry. Over the next few years, it’s likely that these will become more of standard implementation and practice on all new build sites and other eco-conscious technologies will emerge that aid in this process.
