Self-Assessment Tips When Seeking Employment

Self-Assessment Tips When Seeking Employment

Determining personal strengths and weaknesses are imperative when seeking employment. Doing so helps when searching occupations that express individual strengths and professional skills. Job satisfaction also increases when working in a field of interest, versus seeking employment for income-basis only. Take a moment to determine which jobs best suit your career and personal preferences.

 Self-Assessment Tips When Seeking Employment:

  1. If you had to write five positive personality traits about yourself, what would they be?
  2. What unique strengths do you posses that are often complimented? At times others can see our talents and attributes better than ourselves.
  3. Make a list of all your professional accomplishments. It grants visualization in areas you excel or place focus on, as well as determining career paths.
  4. Write down all the skills you have attained over the last few years. You can highlight these accomplishments in your resume or when interviewing.
  5. Ask yourself, "what would you love to do everyday if you were given the opportunity"Your response may or may not be at grasp in the present moment, yet there may be similar career paths and goals to aspire.
  6. What job culture captivates your interest? Some jobs have set schedules and protocols to follow, while other jobs allow for work flexibility and embrace employee feedback. Do you prefer consistency and routine, or does the adventure of an unpredictable workday capture your interest? It’s important to determine what job culture you would thrive in when seeking employment. 
  7. Do your career goals align with those of the company? Address professional aspirations with potential employers to ensure the opportunity is available in the future if the opportunity for career growth arises.  

Taking a few minutes to self-assess before seeking employment can prove beneficial in the long run. If given the opportunity, it’s best to examine personal strengths and weaknesses before committing to a job offer. The intent is to seek work options that support your strengths and professional skills.
