Assessing Your Skills
Step 4 – Identify what you are looking for and what differentiates you
Make sure you have a clear picture as to what you are looking for in an
employer and a job.
Determine the 3 to 4 essential items without which you would have serious
reservations about accepting a position in a company. Criteria can include any
number of factors but you should consider the following and their importance to
Promotional prospects ! Earning Potential ! Social aspect to the job !
Proximity to Home ! Working Hours !Technical challenge ! Leadership ! Culture!
Creativity ! Recognition.
Then look for both a job and a company which offers these things.
Every job seeker should have at least 2 / 3 things that really make them stand
out.. Your differentiator may include excellent performance, depth of
knowledge, completion of a complex projects on time etc. Your profile should
sum up what you have to offer and what makes you special.
