Jobkit >> Deciding on the right job
You may not be the person you think you are. Look at yourself through someone else’s eyes, do they see the same person you do when you look in the mirror. How many skills and qualities have you got that others should know about?
Imagine you are trying to make a good impression, what are you going to say?
Begin by asking yourself these questions:
|Am I?||What do I have to offer?|
|Understanding||Willingness to learn|
|Pleasant||Reliability and punctuality|
|Positive||Sense of humour|
|Do I?||Do I?|
|Listen||Work well in a team|
|Motivate||Act on my own initiative|
|Encourage||Work well on my own|
|Lead people||Build or design|
|Organise people and activities||Follow instructions accurately|
If you don’t know the answers, ask those around you for their opinion, you may be in for a pleasant surprise.
