Dear Alumni,

Below please find one of four (4) assignments that we share with you with full confidence that if completed, will significantly enhance your job search strategy. Completion of all four assignments will provide the following benefits:

  1. Clarity on your skill set that you have to offer the labour market – Will enable you to increase the variety of jobs you apply for.
  2. Clarity on the local &/or overseas labour market trends based on your analysis of job advertisements and financial news relevant to your job or industry of choice – Will help you verify the demand for your targeted job position; and verify if it is time to change fields, pursue higher education, change your job search strategy, or pursue an entrepreneurial venture.
  3. Clarity on how to use social media in your job search strategy – Will help you increase your job search strategies in a contemporary way – The more relevant strategies you incorporate inclusive of using information & communication technology, the greater your chances of attracting a job.
  4. Creation of 100 contact database to facilitate your networking strategy – Will help you be strategic in approaching persons to connect you to opportunities and circulate your resume.

==================================================================

ASSIGNMENT 1 of 4

What Do You Have To Offer?

Create Skills Inventory – A table of what you have to offer the world and your preferred work context i.e.

  • The skills and interests that motivate you (whether you are currently good at them or not, because you can always learn and improve)
  • The kinds of persons you wish to work with/serve
  • The environment you wish to work in (e.g. indoors vs. outdoors, with high interaction with people, with high interaction with machinery etc)
  • The salary you prefer based on your realities

Once you have identified the above, conduct research (online, subject matter experts, labour market/career news & information to determine what fields/job titles represent the characteristics you identified about yourself in all categories.)

*This is the most important exercise because it requires you to think critically about what you want and what you have to offer with regard to building your career. The skills inventory will expand your thinking about what jobs to pursue &/or what business to create or partner with, or what additional skills to learn in order to achieve your career goals.

NB: There are assessments online which can help you to efficiently and accurately do a skills inventory. (Do research and see also the UTech Alumni Relations Job Search-Career Online Resources Doc)
