CHAPTER 5

Develop a Powerful New Skills Language

This is an important chapter with some useful activities that are well worth your time. It provides a helpful list of skills to include on your resume. But this chapter is far more important than that. Knowing your skills is key to making good decisions about your future, interviewing effectively, and finding a job that matches what you do well.

Knowing what you do well is an essential part of writing a good resume. But it is also important to you in other ways. For example, unless you use skills you enjoy and are good at, it is unlikely you will be fully satisfied with your job.

Most people are not good at telling others what skills they have. When asked, few people can quickly say what they are good at, and fewer yet can quickly present the specific skills they have that are needed to succeed in the jobs they want. So knowing your skills and communicating them well will give you an advantage over other job seekers.
