Discovering the career that's right for you

After assessing your Skills, Interests, and Values, you need to determine your strengths and challenges. Knowing these helps you build areas of competence so that you can be confident about what you have to offer an employer.
How do your Skills measure up?
Hired for skills, fired for fit. Research shows that employers want skilled employees who can fit within the company culture. You may think of "skills" as education or training, but skills have so much more to do with your personality, knowledge, and practice than the years you've spent in school. Rate yourself on the following skills to determine where you can improve.
Soft Skills

Soft skills are the hardest to learn, but employers say that they are the MOST important for an employee to keep a job. Can you get along easily with almost anyone? Do you know how to make small talk, and when not to? Can you fit within the company culture? There are many places to learn soft skills, but checking with a career coach can help make sure you're doing everything possible to keep a job. Employers look for people who can help the team. Is that you?
