Potential employers are likely to ask you what you consider to be your biggest strengths, and identifying these can also help you choose a career that you enjoy. One of the first steps to build on your strengths is to identify what you consider to be your professional strengths.
Strengths may include things like research skills, communication, problem-solving abilities, teamwork, interpersonal skills and technical skills. Your career counselor may help you uncover your strengths. Then, you can work together to evaluate specific steps that you can take to build on these strengths to pursue a career. If you are seeking employment, your counselor may help you articulate these strengths for interviews.
