What about your strengths? Will you be able to describe them? Find your positive attributes and remember your strengths are a mixture of your talents, knowledge and skills. You can identify your strengths by asking yourself the following:

  • What are you good at?
  • What comes easily to you?
  • What do you learn quickly?
  • What did you find easiest to learn at school or university>
  • What subjects do you most enjoy studying?
  • What things give you energy?
  • Describe a successful day you have had.
  • When did you achieve something you were really proud of?
  • What things are always left on your to-do list and not finished (these are probably weaknesses: things you dislike doing!)

Whether you are Creative, Caring, Outgoing, Cooperative, Cautious, Goal-Orientated, Conscientious, Adaptable or Determined, make sure you don’t forget to mention it.
