The pace of change in the job market is accelerating. And this is closely related to the so-called 4th Industrial Revolution (or Industry 4.0), notorious for the convergence of digital, physical and biological technologies that stimulate new business models, ways of working and skills. An analysis by PwC, a multinational consulting and audit firm, shows the impact of this automation on jobs. One of the conclusions of the study, carried out with more than 200,000 jobs and in 29 countries, is that professionals in more manual or operational functions will be replaced by jobs that require a combination of technical, digital and social skills.

And it's skills we're going to talk about. In this scenario of changes, you, like many other people, must have doubts about how to properly train yourself and with what speed and frequency to meet market demands. That's why we talked to PatrĂ­cia Bernardi, Talent Phone Number List Acquisition at EBAC, who explains what skill is and what you should do to get where you want to be what is skill By skills is meant the quality of a skilled person, the ability to do something. It's the know-how. Or, as indicated by the American writer Robert Lee Katz, author of Skills of an Effective Administrator.

In this line PatrĂ­cia clarifies that the skilled person knows how to do something and has the behavior and motivation to do it. In practice, as an example, it is someone who knows how to use excel , puts this knowledge into practice and has the motivation to do so. If the person knows how to use the program, but does not put it into practice, it can be said that he has the knowledge, but not the skill. That said, let's break down the skills into the categories defined by the PwC study mentioned at the beginning of this article. The main types of skills Skills are divided into two types: hard skills and soft skills.
