YOU ARE UNIQUE – YOUR SKILLS ARE UNIQUE Imagine you are surrounded by professionals of your field. You have the same educational background and you have worked with the same job title, have had same hobbies or positions of trust. However, when you look a little bit deeper you notice differences in your skills and abilities – even very profound differences. •
Your personalities are different, so you have regarded different aspects of experience important.
Your working styles are different, hence you have used different methods of learning and working.
You have worked in different organizations, with different people and thus learned interpersonal skills and tacit knowledge only these environments could provide.
You have been involved with different tasks and projects and different sides of the profession have been emphasized.
My customers often ask me how they can differentiate themselves from other professionals in the same field and how they could attract the attention of the recruiters. I answer with another question: When do you work with a smile on your face and get great results? My name is Arja Parpala and I work as a Career Coach at the Finnish Business School Graduates.
