Not finding the job you want?
Watch this video on the Skills Log Matrix. Let employers find you!
The Skills Log Matrix is a new method design to dramatically improve the ability of job seekers to find the right job, and the ability of employers to find the right employees. By listing skills – those acquired by employees and those needed for a job listing – a rapid and efficient matching is made possible.
How does it work?
Job seekers create a profile and list their skills from a predetermined list, based on their discipline. Go to our online list to review skills and read definitions. To add a skill, start typing and the skill will come up. Can't find a skill? Just let us know by sending us a message from our Skills Page.
You can add as many skills as you like, there is no limit.
When listing a skill, choose one of three levels of competency:
- Basic – Can perform the skill with some supervision
- Competent – Can perform the skill with no supervision
- Advanced – Can perform the skill and teach others
So that employers may trust your skill level, each skill needs to be verified. This can be done in one of four ways:
- Third party – Enter the name of a former professor or supervisor that can attest to your skill. An email will be sent to them, so they may rapidly verify your skill. Please ask for permission before entering their name for verification purposes.
- Document – Upload a document that certify a skill. For example, it you took a First Aid class, upload completion certification (use this image https://www.templateroller.com/template/60288/first-aid-training-certificate-template.html).
- Link – Link you skill to a professional site. For example, if you are a registered archaeologist, link your skill to your Registrar of Professional Archaeologist page.
- Self-Verify – If no other method of verification is available, choose to self verify you skill.
That’s it. Simple. Easy. Fast. As you acquire more skills, add them to your profile.
Remember, your Twin Cairns profile is always free and can always be updated from any device – desktop, laptop or mobile.
