Chapter 13. Coping with Skill Deficiencies > Improving your Job Skills

Improving your Job Skills

Each job has its unique skill requirements. Some job skills (waitress, equipment operator, etc.) can be taught from scratch after one is employed. Most jobs, however, require a certain skill level before employment is offered (computer operator, carpenter, etc.). In all cases, new employees are required to either improve or adjust their existing skills.

Company Sources:

Supervisor Your boss is responsible for your training and job performance. She or he may or may not give you the training you need. Some supervisors are outstanding instructors. Good luck!
Sponsor It is a common and good practice for a supervisor to assign a sponsor (coworker) who will train and guide you through your first weeks.
Training If you were fortunate enough to receive orientation training, it probably came from the human resources department. Check to see what other training is available and if your organization may provide correspondence courses, self-help books, etc.
