Have you ever wondered what your ASSETS truly are?
Well, here are the seven categories of assets you possess; knowledge, skills, experience, attitude, achievements, relationships and balance.
This is what you bring to the table.This is what you’re selling – your potential!
Here’s a brief explanation of each asset category.
Knowledge: What knowledge do you have? Have you been tested and found worthy? What’s your educational level, certification, license, or special training?
Skills: What can you do with your knowledge? What’re your transferable skills? What can you do to enhance your employer’s results?
Experience: What different environments (locations, industries, sectors, level, functional areas, size of company, Fortune 1000 companies) have you been in and how long were you there?
Achievements: How well did you (or your team) perform? What did you accomplish? What got better because you were there? How did it improve your employer’s results? What obstacles did you overcome?
Attitudes: What motivates you? How do you motivate others? What gets you out of bed in the morning? How do you react under pressure?
Relationships: How well do you work with others? What would others say about your people skills? Have you ever led a team? What drives you crazy? What’s important in your relationship with your Boss? Who do you know that can help us?
Balance: How balanced is your life overall? Is there anything in your life that is out of balance that could become a distraction to your career later on? If you’re out of balance, this could be a liability.
Bottom-line: This is what you’re selling-so make it count! Your job during the interview is to increase the perceived value of your assets. Your assets are what produce results for the employer lucky enough to have you on their team.
