Get prepared: Self-assessment
Identify what makes you an outstanding candidate
An honest and objective self-assessment is a great way to help identify what makes you an outstanding candidate for a position, and it will ultimately enable you to build an application that most clearly reflects your strengths, skills, experience and personal values.
When you find a position that you would like to apply for, take a moment to reflect on and determine the following:
- I know my strengths and interests
- I know my motivators
- I fulfill all the eligibility requirements
- I fulfill all or some of the desirable points that are considered an asset
- I am enthusiastic about the position
In addition, you can use a table to compare the position’s qualifications with your strengths, skills, experiences and interests. This will help you to determine your suitability for the role and organize your application clearly and concisely.
