Graduate unemployment is at an all-time high, this would seem non-sensical due to the misconception that having a qualification would guarantee a job. A large reason for the graduate unemployment rate is because of skills mismatch. According to the PNET Job Market Trends Report Q2:2023 the most in-demand jobs in the SME space are in ‘Business & Management skills, Finance skills, Sales skills, Admin, Office & Support skills and Information Technology skills.’ SMEs make up 50% of Employment worldwide, and SMEs generate 70% of most formal jobs. Your LinkedIn profile is a good place to start. It is the most important digital real estate you will ever own. With over 1 billion active users worldwide, this platform has endless opportunities for connecting, collaborating, and learning.

The labour market is dense, and you often need skills on top of your qualifications to stay competitive; recruiters are having to re-examine the way in which they are recruiting candidates as they are now prioritizing skills. Employers have started to embrace ‘skills-first hiring’, meaning they are most likely to look at skills on top of your education and years of experience. Slowly, this is the direction of job recruitment trends, and as a job seeker, it is important you equip yourself with the necessary tools. Your network on LinkedIn is only one aspect of the platform.
