Self-assessment is a big topic. It's the one that you probably think you can skip but it is the heart and soul of the job search process for serious job seekers.

Before you begin the actual job search process, it is important to think about your goals, abilities, interests and values.

This will help you market yourself more effectively and demonstrate why you should be hired.

Therefore, before beginning your job search, you should be able to answer these questions:

  • What are your abilities?
  • What are your strengths?
  • What type of work are you interested in?
  • What type of organisation(s)/ company(ies) do you want to work for?
  • What skills have you developed through your education, work experience or activities?
You can find answers by taking a close look at yourself.

In order to help you to know more about yourself, your interests and talents, there are some tools you can use for free. The following are some examples but there are more online.
