Good at managing budgets? Always coming up with creative solutions? Great at co-ordinating projects? Knowing what your skills are is essential when considering your career options.
What are you good at?
Office Angels, managing director David Chubb suggests thinking about:
- What do people say you're good at?
- What do people always ask you to do?
- What are you good at?
