Top 10 job strength examples

  1. 1. Top 10 job strength examples I.Steps to assess and select your best strengths Remember, your aim is not necessarily to convince the interviewer that you are the world’s best employee but rather that you are the right employee for the job at hand. The key is to try and match the needs and abilities of the role with your skill set and personality. We recommend that you follow these steps: 1. Begin by identifying five key strengths and then match them to the requirements and skills that are needed to carry out the job. Banish your modest internal editor to another room. Jot down everything that comes to mind. You can delete later if you like. Your strengths could include:

Experience — Experience with a certain software or type of task, expertise in a particular industry, a track record of working with similar products or clients, etc. Talents — Abilities such as programming in a desired language, writing proposals, selling widgets, litigating cases, organizing events, translating from Mandarin, etc. (the possibilities here are truly endless) Soft skills — Competencies such as problem solving, influencing, team building, negotiation, managing up, etc. Education/training — Relevant background on topics critical to the job — including college degrees, certifications, training seminars, mentoring, internships, etc. If you have trouble coming up with enough work-related strengths, jot down positive personality qualities or personal strengths.

If the need is for interaction with multiple departments, say, you can take this to mean excellent communication and interpersonal skills. 3. Think quality not quantity. Focus on a few key strengths and explain these succinctly. This will leave your interviewer better placed to remember you and your credentials. 4. Aim to strike a balance between over- confidence and underselling yourself. If you list too many strengths you risk sounding arrogant, whereas too little implies a lack of confidence or, worse still, skills. 5. Always have an example ready for each strength. For example, if you mention excellent
  4. 4. communication skills, you could follow this up with how this helped you when running multiple social media platforms during your work experience. 6. Prepare Examples. Develop at least one example or Interview Story to illustrate each of your strengths. If you’re not sure how to go about crafting compelling stories and examples from your previous experience. II.
