Make a list of ten skills you currently have. Rank the list of skills, with one being the skill with which you think you have the highest competence, and ten the skill with which you have the lowest.
Once you have your list, write down the jobs you think use these skills. Notice if there is overlap with the jobs you brainstormed in your interest inventory. Are your strongest skills related to the jobs mentioned in your interest inventory? If there isn’t any overlap—or if your weaker skills are those related to jobs in your interest areas—write down the ways you might bridge the gap between your interest-related jobs and your current skill set.
