When selling yourself in the talent marketplace, focusing on
hard-won strengths required for the job in question can be all too
easy. These skills are often the ones that many other people have
too. Your most outstanding talent is probably something you do
without even thinking.
Ask colleagues or friends what strengths you might be undervaluing.
Lead with these exceptional skills instead. Articulate to prospective
employers, or to the boss who’s considering your raise, your unique
value proposition as an employee. Employers don’t just want
someone slightly better than everyone else; they are looking for
someone with a truly distinctive skill set.
