Assessing Your Skills
Step 3 – Create your personal profile and identify your strengths and
Make a table which allows you to build a profile of what skills and
characteristics you have- it will highlight those attributes which really made
you successful. Once you have fully completed this table, you will have a clear
picture of those things that make you excel in your work and those areas which
perhaps need some development.
You should now have a clear insight into what your strengths and weaknesses are
so list the top and bottom four of each. Review each one individually and
prepare a development plan to help you with your weaknesses - this will show
any prospective employer that you are proactively managing your own
development. A development plan could be as simple as ' I will improve my pc
literacy skills by completing the ECDL course by December 2004'
