While submitting an application or interviewing for a job you may be approached with the question, “What skills do you bring to this job?” and your mind goes blank. Having a list of relevant skills to pull from can be helpful when it comes to that question—and by strategically integrating certain skills into the bullet points on your resume, you can ensure you're positioning yourself as qualified for the role you're applying for.
Whether you know exactly what your skills are or need some help brainstorming, you can use our free workbook to easily list current skills as well as discover potential new skills that can aid you in your career growth.
Identify your current skills by thinking about past experiences, jobs, or programs you have used in the past and pull ideas from those. This can be anything from hard skills like SQL or graphic design to non-technical, soft skills like strong written communication skills or team leadership experience. List your current skills by writing your own or selecting from our skills database.
Then move on to the potential skills section. Again, you can use the skills database for inspiration or write your own. You can also mark the skills you’re interested in learning that would be useful in your career. By the end, you will have a list of go-to skills to look back at whenever you need to.
