The Value of You
- Using Indeed.com, identify three current positions in your field that interest you.
- Using Careeronestop.org and/or BLS.gov, conduct research on the
three positions you are interested in and answer the following
questions. (Refining 8 questions).
- Reflection: Choose one of the positions you researched that you
are most interested in and answer the following questions in paragraph
form. (Refining 5 questions).
- What are the job titles you found in your research of job descriptions? Briefly summarize what employers are asking for in terms of experience, education and other qualifications.
- How do you match up with what employers say they need? What
qualifications do you have that align? What are the gaps between what
you currently have to offer and what the employer expects? What will you
do to overcome those gaps? (Please note: Obviously few people will have
everything an employer advertises, so aim to have about 60-70% of the
stated qualifications. If you find that you have less than that, and you
are not qualified for the jobs you identified, then go back again and
search for new jobs that you are qualified for. You might need to look
for more entry-level jobs. If you don’t have experience in your field,
where do you need to start to get experience?)
- Look for themes among the job ads. List at least three core competencies
that someone needs to do that job effectively. In other words, what are
the skills, characteristics and abilities a successful candidate must
have (e.g., analysis, forecasting, budgeting, complex decision making,
ethics/compliance, persistence, number orientation, communication,
specific software knowledge, etc.)?
- For each of the three core competencies, write at least one specific story
that demonstrates how you have proven that you possess that competency.
In other words, think about times when you have demonstrated those
skills and characteristics. What did you do? How well did you do it?
What was the result? What specific, detailed, concrete examples can you
provide to your future employer that demonstrates your value? Consider
this a personal success “story” you can tell to prove your ability. Your
stories can come from your work experience, education, volunteer work,
even personal life (if those stories are professional and relevant). See
examples of stories in Resources.
- For each story you have written, condense each story into one powerful accomplishment action bullet that you can use on your resume. See examples of action bullets in Resources.
- If you had to describe the value you gained from this course to
your future employer in an interview, how would you do that? What story
would you tell about this educational experience? What have you learned
from running your own simulated business that will help you add value
to your future employer? Write an answer for how you might tell that
story on your next interview?
- You have begun to create the book of stories to use in your career
search and advancement, but this is just the start. Where you take your
stories from here is up to you. It is not enough to just have experience
or education in your field. You also need to know how to communicate
- As you move your career forward, consider further how you might
use these stories to demonstrate your value. Find ways to add to your
book of stories. Use them to write your resume, network, see your own
value, prepare for your next interview, and more.
