What skills do you think you have? And what do you think you’re particularly good at doing? By identifying the skills you have, you can begin to explore the best opportunities that help you to succeed in school, the workforce, and in life overall. Recognising your skills is a key step in choosing a good career goal for yourself. When you find a career that matches the skills you have, you have a higher chance of being successful and gaining job satisfaction. So what skills do you think you have?
Do you have good social skills?
Good social skills means you’re good at working with people, especially in order to achieve goals. You’re sensitive to the reactions of others and are able to understand and adjust to their reactions accordingly. You’re good at persuading others to change their minds or behaviour. You’re probably great at getting people to sign petitions or support a cause.
Other examples of good social skills include bringing others together and trying to reconcile differences in opinion. People with good social skills are also good at teaching others how to do something, such as coaching children in sports activities or tutoring students. If you have good social skills, it is likely that you are always actively looking for ways to help people.
