New jobs are constantly being created!
Svenja Hofert has listed numerous examples for her thesis - here is a section, the complete, by the way, very good text can be found here!
Functional areas such as marketing, human resources, accounting dissolve, diversify or are flanked by new departments. All this makes it ... difficult to find something suitable from job markets. Does this mean project manager, project manager, project coordinator, consultant or even project engineer? All sorts of names can be used for one and the same activity ... Things get really difficult for jobs in the fourth sector, ie highly qualified positions requiring specialist knowledge. The same activities in the field of sustainability could be found under "Researcher", "Manager Sustainability", "Employee Sustainability" and "Expert Sustainability".
The matching problem
However, this results in a very practical job search problem - for jobseekers like HR alike. After all, how can you find exactly the right one out of the large supply and demand market if the appropriate designations are missing? And especially in the Internet, where it depends on absolutely matching search terms, so the matching.
Svenja Hofert has the following suggested solution:
Simple function and area searches in job markets hardly work. This is a tremendous requirement for the job markets, because here an intelligent search is needed, as they are currently only in use. The basic problem is missing functional descriptions.
Be found instead of self search
Standardized job titles as well as finely defined search functions rejects them however lack of practicability - the effort would be too great. Hofert's approach, on the other hand, is not to look for yourself, job search engines can not offer what you're looking for. But make sure that you find yourself.
However, as you will then see at the end of your article, then you have exactly the same problem: Which terms should you eg enter into a Xing profile to be better found. Xing coach Joachim Rumohr has built up his entire career from tips and more on how to be found at Xing. But the basic problem will not solve a coaching with him.
What should I write?
Namely: What do I enter, if my job title is unclear, spongy, poorly definable and changes more often times - as is becoming more and more normal these days? What should one actually search for?
So I think that, while it seems plausible at first glance, this whole job-hunting matching problem will not provide adequate results for an increasing percentage of jobseekers. There are completely different mechanisms in demand - especially in the Internet.
The solution to the matching problem
Regine Heidorn already has before weeks here in the interviewHow this can work: For example, she discovers in communication via Twitter, also about her private life, skills that she did not even think she could have. Heidorn develops her new profession in practical conversation:
On Twitter, I also communicate about things like hobbies or personal preferences. Exactly the result is often unimagined job opportunities: For example, I often Geocaching, a kind of scavenger hunt with mobile devices. Anja Wagner has also noticed that, at the University of Applied Sciences (HTW) Berlin, she is carrying out eLearning projects.
An example that may well be forward-looking and recommended for imitation! What do you all mean?
