Alumni Spotlight: Time to Get to Know…Yourself

Imagine you’re in the middle of a job interview and you get asked: What is your biggest strength?

“I’m highly organized…”
“My attention to detail…”
“….multi tasker…”
“I’m a people person…”
“…innovative and think outside the box…”

Maybe one of the above is your go-to answer to that question. Maybe it’s something else. But is it really your greatest strength? Spend some time confirming your strengths (and perhaps discover some new ones)!

This article by Nadia Goodman on Entrepreneur.com gives advice on how to pay attention to your strengths. There are also several books (StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath as an example) if you’re interested in delving deeper into this subject.
