Once you have made the big transition through job searching and landed the job, the next goal is job success. There are specific skills you need to know and use to be successful at your job. It is important to practice these skills prior to starting the job. First impressions show from day one. You only get one first impression. It is a good idea to check with your supervisor about what is most important.
Employment experts agree that skills identification is essential to a successful job search. Employers want to know what you can do for them-not just what you have done for someone else. Knowledge of your unique skills is needed to successfully complete an application, write a résumé, or answer interview questions. Skills identification is the first step toward new employment.
