Get excellent students who provide companies with the talent they need.
We are starting a series of posts in which we are going to explain the three basic pillars on which Campus Cámara FP supports the ultimate objective of improving the employability of our students:
1- TALENT PROFESSIONALS . We are committed to training in the soft skills that companies need.
2- PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE OF BUSINESS ACTIVITY . Daily contact with the company, from our location, to collaborations with experts in the classroom.
We will write the three posts “by four hands” because in each of them we will have the participation of people directly involved in the consolidation of learning and the development of these three pillars of Campus Cámara FP and expert collaborators who help us make it possible, such as: the coordinator of the 10SK® Program, one of our teachers who, as an active professional, brings the casuistry of the company to the classroom and an expert in anthropology who will work with our students on basic protocol techniques to work in different environments and countries.
We send our thanks to the three professionals who will collaborate with the Campus Cámara FP management team, not only for helping us in this activity, but also for working with us to achieve a common goal: getting excellent students who contribute to companies the talent they need. Thank you.
1. TALENTED PROFESSIONALS
We train our students in the soft skills necessary in the company
Many times we share with our students the talent formula of Luis Conde, president of the talent hunting firm Seeliger y Conde:
TALENT = (KNOWLEDGE + VALUES) x ATTITUDE
As you can see, attitude is the factor that multiplies talent and the key to achieving any challenge. Like everything, we can train it and the most important thing at this point is to train all those skills that improve and broaden the attitude of our students in the face of the challenge of increasing their own employability.
According to the latest studies by the HR Observatory, a great advance has been seen in science and technology.
It is observed that technical knowledge is losing importance compared to the ability to adapt or learn, that is, there is a considerable increase in the degree of importance of soft skills compared to hard skills.
On the employment specialist website jobatus.es they have detected that 73% of companies directly include in their job offers the need for candidates to have interpersonal skills; And it is not enough to have only technical knowledge to get interviews or jobs, other types of skills are needed that make a professional stand out from the rest.
On the other hand, we must not forget that we live in a digital age, and as seen in the previous data, it has led many companies to begin to exponentially value the use of certain social skills.
To get an idea of the size of this demand, data from Eurostat says that in 2019, 47% of large European companies signed or tried to sign professionals from the digital sector, but with a new requirement, that they be equipped with these skills.
As Raúl Alonso commented a few weeks ago in a post on the Think Big/Empresas de Telefónica blog, 58% of the most desired digital talent would be made up of knowledge or skills that qualify a person to perform a specific professional task ( hard skills ) . , and in 42% of behavioral and social attributes that favor the person’s adaptation to business and human environments ( soft skills ).
It has been observed that, with the current state of the pandemic, job offers that include one or more soft skills have increased by 39.9% compared to the same period last year, in which the offers were only 42%, as a study by the Autonomous University presented in 2020 points out.
In addition, the Covid-19 pandemic has precipitated a sudden and unexpected increase in telecommuting, which is another reason for the incredible increase in interest in soft skills by companies.
With this current situation of teleworking, skills related to communication and self-management have become the most valued by companies . But, depending on the sector, leadership, teamwork, self-management and adaptation to change may be more valued.
Thus, from Campus Cámara FP we are developing a specific training program for our students and parallel to the curriculum of each of the cycles, which allows them to train the necessary skills of a good professional.
In other posts we have shared the 10SK® Program that has been running since October 1 and that we have started with one of the most important skills: Teamwork.
During the month of November we will work on Communication and so on, we will train the ten fundamental skills:
1- TEAM WORK
As a basis for the generation of shared learning and good practices.
2- COMMUNICATION .
Assess the impact that oratory has on daily work to unite teams and inspire values. Persuasion as a tool.
3- ACTIVE LISTENING AND EMPATHY .
Balance in interpersonal communication, listening without interference and learning to put yourself in the other’s shoes and accompany them in their state of mind.
4- CO-CREATION .
Break limitations and prejudices. abandon the traditional mentality linked to products and services to adopt a very different one, the mentality based on experience.
5- PRESSURE TOLERANCE .
Self-control, self-confidence and emotional intelligence.
6- RESULTS ORIENTATION .
Self-efficacy and its impact on individual and team results.
7- ADAPTATION TO CHANGE .
Accelerate responsiveness to keep pace with transformations in the workplace .
8- PROACTIVITY .
Take control of what we do by taking the initiative in developing creative actions that generate improvements.
9- VERSATILITY AND VERSATILITY .
3.0 professionals who promote a new way of working because they feel part of a change.
10- RESILIENCE .
Not only face problems and solve them, but come out stronger. face adversity, overcome it and transform positively.
The program is designed so that our students can train all these skills in the classroom and outside of it so that, as soon as they enter the labor market, they have added value to the rest of the candidates in the selection processes and can develop their career. successful professional.
