When considering your next career move, it's essential to know what your professional strengths and challenges are. You will benefit from gaining insight into the qualities that make you a strong candidate for other opportunities, and into your areas for improvement that require attention here and now. Your self-awareness will be a deciding factor in:
starting your job search
accepting a job offer
staying where you are and continuing to build your skills
If you have been working for a number of years in a job, and you are feeling ready to try something new, you may feel insecure about making your next move. This feeling may influence your decision to take on or shy away from new opportunities.
Through the clarification of your values, interests, personality and aptitudes, a self-assessment is a great reminder of:
who you are
what is important to you
what value you bring to your field, and
where you see yourself in your career development.
Consider conducting a self assessment on a regular basis throughout your career as a valuable career "check-in" - reflecting your growth as an individual and a professional.
