For some, Presidents’ Day is intended to honor all the American presidents, but most significantly George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Both considered important leaders of the United States and remembered for their unique contributions for shaping The Nation.
Whether you are in job search mode or simply keeping your career materials up-to-date, I recommend that you ask yourself the following important questions:
- What makes me unique?
- What significant contributions in my career have had a positive impact for my previous / current employers?
- How am I perceived by my peers, clients, and employer(s)?
- What are my key areas of expertise?
The answers to the above will help you to differentiate yourself from the competition and design a script for having a career-related conversation with a potential employer, career coach, or current employer as you seek career advancement.
