Skill Identification

What are you Good At?

Highlighting your skills in resumes, cover letters and interviews is part of the foundation of a successful job search. Employers want to know more than your past job titles. They want to know your talents and what you have done with them.

Skills vs. Job Training

If being certified might help you find a job, take short-term classes and look for contract assignments or other hands-on experiences. Look for volunteer opportunities. Or take on a few do-it-yourself gigs to reveal your talents in a field.


Using the list of skills you have identified, you can put them to work by developing what is called a “self-brand.”  You are not just a job seeker or a face in the crowd.
