How can you highlight your assets during a job interview?
What do you know how to do? What are your qualities and values? What industries suit you?
In order to “sell yourself” as best as possible during a job interview, it’s important to do some real thinking beforehand to increase your self-awareness:
- Who are you? What are your personal and professional qualities? Your family and friends can help you recognise your strong points!
- What are you capable of doing? Here you should describe the activities you carried out during your professional experience, internships, student jobs, leisure time or even in your daily routine. Be able to make a good list, in writing, of your skills and qualities.
- What do you like to do? What are your preferences, motivations and sources of satisfaction? Be able to recognise what really makes you happy.
- What do you know? Identify very clearly the knowledge acquired during your studies, any additional training and also in your professional activities.
