Module 2 – Introduction to Job Search
Knowing your Skills & Abilities
Working out what you have to offer an employer is an important part of the job search.
It’s even more important to write it in your CV, because it lets an employer see what you can bring to the job and their company.
Everyone has different skills. You develop them all through your life – from school, work and other experiences. If you’re really good at a skill, it turns into one of your strengths.
By knowing your skills (and strengths) you’ll be able to match them with what an employer is looking for. It can also help widen your choice of jobs.
Most people don’t realise that everyday tasks that they accomplish can be a skill set.
