Build Your Skill Toolkit

Identifying your skills is essential for communication with potential employers, as well as developing one’s own skill toolkit. Being aware of the contents of this personal toolkit is extremely important when building a successful job application—the more relevant your skills, the more likely you are to get the job. Through experience, education, and training, you can keep improving the skills you possess and develop new ones throughout your life.
