In today’s tough economic environment, the struggle to get a job that maximizes your skills and pays your bills is fierce. Knowing what your strengths and weaknesses are is essential. Intelligence, self-confidence, the will to work hard, the ability to communicate well, self-motivation, and knowing how to work in teams are examples of strengths. Although there are also weaknesses that must be taken into account: lack of skills, tendency to debate, nervousness with people and tendency to exceed the limits of work …

Intelligence, communication and self-confidence

Intelligence regarding the job being applied for is determined by your mastery of the skills necessary to complete the job. Jobs that require excellence in written and verbal communication will not only require you to be able to write and speak clearly, but will also require the ability to use a word processor or other computer software and have the competence to search the Internet.

Self- confidence is measured by the degree to which you can accurately trust your own wisdom and act on what you know to be correct. This requires a level of self-assertion that you don’t need to be arrogant. Self-confidence doesn’t mean you never need to ask for help.

Work hard for your money

No company wants to pay a bum.  Bosses really appreciate employees who not only do their job and done it, but are willing and able to take their share of the load, and more. Volunteering for an extra job, being pleasant to work with, and being willing to share knowledge and help others not only helps get the job done, it will make you look like a star among your peers and your bosses.

Be willing to own your weakness

It is rare for a job seeker to master all the desired areas. This is why you need to anticipate what a potential employer will see as a weakness and be prepared to indicate how you have already addressed the problem. Mention the work you are doing to correct your weakness on your resume: if you are taking a course or volunteering for a company to strengthen your area of ​​weakness, say so and you will be able to document your efforts and your self- love to improve.

Weaknesses that will sink you

The struggle or the tendency to debate, the nervousness around people and the tendency to exceed the limits of work create tension in your work position that will make it easier for bosses to decide to fire you … 

If you think you have weaknesses in your job, make an effort to improve so that you can do your job well, whether you have bosses or you are the boss of your company. Push yourself and you will see that your fight will be well rewarded
