Before applying for a new role, take the time to reflect on the skills you possess. A self-assessment can help you to identify which skills you have that will add value to a company, as well as those skills that you may need to brush up on and develop in order to succeed in a new role.
You can think about the skills you have previously acquired in past roles and which skills in particular you enjoy using at work. Try to think of a time where you might have struggled to complete a task. How did this hinder you progress? Did you feel confident in approaching the task? What could you do to improve and develop this particular skill in order to feel confident and self-assured in this area?
