Playing on your Strengths When Job Hunting

Looking for a new job is never easy, but it’s made even harder when you are looking for positions that simply aren’t right for you. If you are in this situation, then you can make your own life much easier by looking for jobs that really play to your strengths. Very quickly employers will recognise your strengths and will realise what you can and can’t do, so it’s very much worthwhile playing on these strengths in the interview, helping you to land the job in the first place.

How do you play on your strengths? The first step is to identify them in the first place. All good employees will have very good awareness of where their strengths lie and how they can capitalise on them in the workplace. Spend some time thinking about what you are good at in your current role and how this helps you to complete your work to a higher standard.
