Up to date skills 'are vital'
General News |
Workers should make sure their skills are up to date in order to make the most of any opportunities that come their way, one expert has claimed.
According to Victor Smart, spokesperson for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, those who keep their talents and CVs fresh will do better than those who do not.
"If you've got good skills, if they're up to date and they are relevant you will be in a much better position to survive than if your skills are rusty," he said.
By early next year it should be clear how deep any recession will be and so people will be able to get a better idea of what the recruitment market will look like over the course of 2009, Mr Smart added.
Yesterday, Penny de Valk, chief executive of the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM), urged firms to support bosses during tough times.
According to Ms de Valk managers are vital to a firm's success and they must be offered all possible assistance.
