The World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting 2017, held last January in Switzerland concluded that workers' skills need to keep pace with technological change.
The jobs portal, Jobs Across the World, claims to be the most comprehensive and successful global online employment solution, offering applicants a platform where they can find employment in all industries no matter where the job seeker or the company is located.
According to recent data from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), technology's rapid advancement and the digitization of the workplace are making it increasingly more difficult for candidates to match their skill-sets with the needs of companies.
A 45 per cent of workers surveyed by the OECD believe that they lack the appropriate skills to do their jobs effectively, and just 3 in 10 workers believe that they have the right skills to be able to cope with more demanding work.
Although Jobs Across the World does not offer skill advancement via its platform, it does use an innovative technological platform to best match job seekers to companies. For a fee, candidates can post their resume on the jobs portal and receive the assistance from a team of career development experts to landing the job they deserve.
Employers in turn have free access to an extensive database of resumes of skilled foreign workers, which makes it easy to search for potential employees based on such filter categories as: occupation, education, skills, experience, language abilities and other requirements.
