Preparing for Your Job Interview:
Identifying your skills and getting that job
When applying for a job, it is ideal that you identify your strengths andweaknesses and get prepared to address them. By knowing your advantage, thechances of getting the job that you want will surely get easier.But you should not get too confident since this is one of the common mistakesthat plague job applicants. Appearing too confident or as somewhat of a know itall person will only get you labeled by your interviewer as unfit for the job.
Identifying your skills
First thing's first. You should identify your skills. This is your ticket to get that job and you should be able to articulate your abilities and expertise as best asyou can.Many people have a hard time telling their skills and abilities as this may seemto be bragging. But you should not be shy or afraid to discuss your skills.In fact, it is important that you convey to your potential employer what yourtalents are. You should be able to sell your abilities to your employer.That is how you will get the job that you want. It is important that you don'tappear arrogant or condescending but you should also avoid selling yourself short.If the interviewer asks you about your strengths or what separates you from theother applicants, you should be able to readily give a good answer. But beforeyou even go to the interview part, your resume should highlight your skills andtalents for your prospective employer to see.

Type of skills
There are two main types of skills, hard skills and soft skills. Hard skills aretangible in the sense that these are things that you do like: knowing how tooperate different kinds of machinery, knowledge of a specialized computerprogram, ability to type fast, skills on using many types of tools, credentialsregarding special crafts, etc.Soft skills are skills that are rather abstract in nature like personal qualities. Thismay include the folowing: being a good team player, having the ability to workon your own, being enthusiastic or organized and decisive.
The steps to follow
Making a list of your previous jobs and experience acquiredFirst thing to do is to make a list of all the companies that you had worked forand the things that you learned from these jobs. There will be a lot of things tolist and you should be careful enough not to forget even the smallest things oractivities that you were part of or organized. It is also a good idea to list thevolunteer activities that you participated in.
Include a list of your hobbies
Although it might sound trivial at first, it is also very helpful to list all yourhobbies. There are a lot of abilities that your prospective employer may get fromyour hobby list.This will also give an idea of your personality. For example, if you were part of the school's debating team, then your employer may deduce that you have goodanalytical skills.
