The first thing that may cross your mind in the job search is work experience. While it’s a job search myth that experience is king, there are a few other factors employers are looking for in potential employees. One of those being your skill set. Do you have the skills needed to stand out from other applicants and grab the employer’s attention? If you’re applying for your first job, switching career paths, looking to add new skills on your resume or just wanting to learn something new in your spare time; this will be great news for you!
