Before you begin your job search, it is important to take time to identify the skills, abilities and attributes you possess. After all, you are the product in your job search campaign. If an employer hires you, it is because you have the experience to meet the employer needs. Packaging yourself effectively gives you personal power and self-confidence to conduct a positive and productive job search campaign.
Take an inventory of your skill sets, experience, accomplishments, attributes and talents before you begin to prepare your resume. These skills can come from employment experience, volunteer work, academic training, extra-curricular activities and personal interests. Be objective when assessing skills. Done objectively, you will be surprised at the amount of skills you can derive from your background that are suitable for many jobs within your field of interest.
