You Must Understand And Know Your Skills And Concentrate Your Efforts On
You must understand and know your skills and concentrate your efforts on those areas of opportunity where these are most likely to make a contribution to solving a potential employer's problems. A potential employer has a problem A potential employer is interested in what you can do for him / her, not what you were or did.
He has a problem unique to himself. His vacancy exists because he is in a situation which he believes can only be resolved through employing someone capable of carrying out certain tasks. He sets the criteria.
Your aim must be to demonstrate your ability to satisfy his criteria, not to tell him / her the story of your life. He has enough problems of his own. Skills: Do you know what your skills are? If the honest answer is yes, then indeed you are fortunate.
Few people can. Those who genuinely try, soon recognise that they never will understand all their skills. Skills should not be confused with knowledge or techniques.
Skills are what enable us to use knowledge and techniques. Skills are those basic abilities loaned to us for use, development, and as a means to live.
