Leadership: Not to be confused with management, leadership skills can be acquired at any level of a career. Leadership is not necessarily about managing staff. Instead, leadership is simply about influence and productivity. If you can influence positive change and improve your own productivity, you are a leader when compared to those who arenâ€™t meeting the same goals. To become more marketable as a leader, begin to document your career accomplishments and the specific roles you played. Then, be prepared to share your leadership skills with a potential employer â€¦ even if itâ€™s not a management role. A true leader is welcome on every level. Victoria Anderson shares that â€œleadership is a catch phrase that encompasses a host of skills such as, project management, communication, time-management, client relationships, and negotiation.â€ A marketable employee will work intentionally to enhance their skills in these areas.
