How Can a Personal Skills Assessment Land You in Management?

How Can a Personal Skills Assessment Land You in Management?Often job candidates or those seeking promotions toot their job skills without realizing their personal skills are what bosses are looking for.  So what’s the difference between the two?

Job skills are all about the tasks required for the job. For example, hands-on computer knowledge is a job skill. Personal skills are individual traits, such as the ability to communicate or to be a good team member.

A Personal Skills Assessment from Assessment Solutions Gives You Power

Use the power from a Personal Skills Assessment to sell yourself to your next boss.

But to sell your personal skills, you have to know them. Do you know your strengths? Do you know what value your personal skills have to an organization? Many people don’t. But you can have a competitive edge simply by knowing you possess what “the boss” is looking for in a new hire – whether you are on the first interview with H.R. or the tenth interview with an immediate supervisor. With this knowledge, you will be able to hone your interview speak with pertinent and informative dialogue directed to the needs of the organization. If you’ve done your research, you know all companies are looking for pretty much the same soft or personal skills, but knowing what they are and subjectively checking them on your list is one thing, knowing you possess these high-demand skills through a Personal Skills Assessment is another. That’s how you can sell your personal skills.

A Personal Skills Assessment will also point out areas of weakness so you can hone new skills. Do you need help in communication? Team play? Personal accountability? Time Management? We not only offer assessments to help you understand yourself better but training, workshops, and coaching. In addition, many of our personal assessments will show you what you are looking for in a new job – what motivates you. What your drivers are. What jobs will fulfill your innermost needs. You can consider this investment a shortcut to happiness.
