Identifying Your Skills

If you know what your knowledge, skills and abilities are, you will be able to develop a better career objective. Your career objective is a simple (usually one or two sentence) statement of what you want to do or accomplish. It is important to predefine your career objective so that you can focus your job search efforts. It is also important to correctly state this on your resume and appropriate areas of job applications.

It is also important to correctly state this on your resume and appropriate areas of job applications.

Job-Specific Skills

Job-specific skills are skills that you use to perform a particular task. These skills are often gained from specialized training and education or experience on the job. For example, mechanics need knowledge about how mechanical systems and engines work. They must be familiar with the tools of the trade and have the ability to perform specific tasks, such as overhauls, installing parts, etc. Most jobs have specific skills that are necessary to the job.

Job-specific skills may also be gained through volunteer work, hobbies or home management, and training.

Transferable Skills

Transferable skills are skills that are not unique to a particular task and that you can transfer or use from one job or career to another. Transferable skills usually involve doing something with people, data or things and can be ranked according to their complexity. More complex skills often require greater initiative, creativity and problem solving. The more complex the skill is, the less competition there is for jobs and greater the compensation will be.

Some examples of transferable skills are supervising, analyzing, problem solving and organizing.

Your career objective is a simple (usually one or two sentence) statement of what you want to do. It is important to define your career objective so that you can focus your job search. It is also important to correctly state this on your resume and appropriate areas of job applications. View the Career Objective on your Avjobs Applicant Resume and Master Profile to ensure it is what you want employers to read and know about your goals. You should have provided this information during the initial set up of your account. You should re-visit your objective and update it as necessary. Your objective can be updated in 2 different places:

From the navigation menu:

  1. Resume > Personal Information > Career Objective:
     (This information will appear at the top of your Resume)
    - or -
  2. My Account > Applicant Details > Please provide a short bio about yourself and your career interests

The career objective tells employers what you can do and what you want to do. Your career objective is a crucial part of finding a job.
