When it comes to finding a job and getting hired, knowing your Strengths and Weaknesses is very important. By fully understanding and realizing the areas that get you ahead you can showcase them in order to get the job.
By having an idea of the areas which you are weak or falling behind in, will help you to work on them in order to drive improvement in line with your career prospects.
How do I identify my strengths?
Well, the things you’re good at and the things you love to do are clearly your strengths. You might have technical experience and know how or you might have an innovative mindset that solves problems. In terms of identifying what you’re good at you don’t need to look very far.
How do I identify my weaknesses?
What are the tasks you dislike doing, that you find complicated, tough or avoid, those are most likely to be your weak areas.
It does not mean that you are bad or hopeless at these tasks, it most likely means you have not had sufficient training and or hands-on experience doing them so you find them challenging.
When it comes to the all-important job interview, you can shine from the crowd by highlighting and upselling your key strengths, skills and competencies. At the same time, you can address any weak areas so your employer knows you are already working on improving your skills and making your weakness your strength.
If you have the passion to succeed then it’s important to figure out what you are good at and what makes you stand out. Only then will you realize what your weaknesses are. This will make you stronger and more confident in selling your skills, knowledge and experience.
