So You Don’t Have Any Particular Skills. Now What?

So you don’t have any particular skills or experience to make you stand out from the crowd. Now What?

The internet is loaded with successful stories. The online world is buzzing with startups that hit the jackpot overnight. Nevertheless, however smart, cool, or ever supernatural it might look from the outside, probably 90% of these overnight successes happened thanks to years of hard work.

It’s natural to feel invisible in a world that seems to have only geniuses with unbelievable sharp skills pushed into the light. Still, you can create your own reality. The majority of people are just like you, and might not have any particular skills or experience. So, let’s ditch the misconception that you are not good enough, and start working on a plan.

Make a Change

Each person is unique and has his/her set of difficulties, but there’s one thing that connects all such cases together, namely, mindset. Did it ever happen to you to think of something, and then you just saw it everywhere you looked?

Some people call it luck, others call it mindset. If you are only thinking about red cars, your subconscious will notify you about every red car that passes by you. Going by the same theory, if you think you’re not passionate enough for a job or that no available job might suit you, then you will create experiences that will support this belief.

Today is a great day to start changing. You shouldn’t go to any extremes. It’s good to stick to your character even if your actions attract critics. As long as it is well meant, what you do will draw the attention of your kind of people someday.

So, all you need to do is identify what you want. Having no skills or experience isn’t equal to having no meaning of life. Search within yourself and designate your purpose. If you don’t have any, find one. There are many charity institutions, traveling experiences, and phenomenal people out there waiting for your presence. These are just a few examples, experience whatever feels right for you until it feels great.

Surround yourself with friends. The entourage is often the external factor that pulls you down instead of pushing you upwards. Good friends are there to tell you when you are making a mistake and they also encourage you to fix it. They are there to believe in you, and sometimes that’s all you need to improve your self-confidence.

Create Experience

Everyone started a professional career with a first step. You have to be at least 18 years old for most jobs, but a driving buring passion can come before that age or much later. The secret is to start small.

Many entry-level jobs don’t require previous work experience. This is a good start to get accustomed to the system, understand how a company works and get familiar with working in a team. Having a job might even seem simple, you just go there eight hours a day. However, any job, no matter how insignificant it may look, will teach you valuable lessons about succeeding.

Moreover, in today’s world, all types of occupations are interconnected. Even the most basic jobs will teach you things that a good leader must know, such as cooperation, discipline, customer care, communication, stress managing and many others. So, don’t refuse opportunities based on the reason that they are not good enough. Many companies are willing to hire employees with zero experience and invest in their development. This way, they will become loyal and will stay longer than another candidate with previous work experience.

An extra secret to acquiring quality experience is to have a vertical history of employment. Your second job should give you higher responsibilities and benefits than the previous one. This means that you shouldn’t just be pleased with having a job, but learn everything there is, even about the tasks that are not assigned to you.

Be curious, ask questions, take a look around you from time to time and understand what’s going on beyond your responsibilities. You will get to grasp each key element that puts your company in motion, and you’ll be ready for your next professional opportunity.

Create Skills

If you don’t have any, you can learn them from scratch. There are two types of skills: hard (also known as technical) and soft. Technical skills are the set of knowledge that enables you to perform your job, such as programming languages as a programmer or foreign languages as a translator. You aren’t born with them, so you can study and practice to acquire new technical skills.

Read books and exercise what you learn. There are hundreds of thousands of online courses that teach you anything you want. In addition, you can get in contact with professionals through email or social media, and ask them to guide you.

Soft skills are the set of personal attributes that help you socialize and be efficient. Some examples would be communication, creativity, problem-solving, working in a team, and writing. These are usually inborn, but it doesn’t mean you can’t learn them.

Typically, soft skills require a practical approach. If you want to become more sociable and outgoing, you should take any opportunity you have to start a conversation. Come up with interesting topics to discuss, manage the conversation so that it will not drift off topic, and act like a charismatic host. “Fake it till you make it” may have become a cliché, but it works wonders.

The same “learning through practice” technique should be applied to all other soft skills you want to have. Exercise them every day and don’t stop no matter how ridiculous it may seem. Imagine a person who comes for the very first time to a gym; everyone else looks like a professional bodybuilder while the new guy makes goofy moves and doesn’t make it through the entire aerobic class. However, in a matter of a few months, they will become the experienced gym goers. Your soft skills are like muscles. With training, they can grow strong and impressive.

Taking these three points into consideration, remember, there is no such thing as lack of experience or skills. Instead, there are new beginnings, challenges, and adventures. Give yourself time to invest in who you are, what you want and like doing, know yourself and the people that support that uniqueness and have fun, standing out from the crowd means creating your own path.
