Write a description of your current job including all the tasks and requirements of what you do every day. Then in a different column, list all the skills you use on a daily basis. Finally, compare the two columns – Is there anything missing from your job description that doesn’t have a corresponding skill? Is there anything in your skill set that doesn’t find a home somewhere in your job description?
- If there are a lot of things in your job description that don’t have a matching skill then you probably need to get learning.
- If there are more skills than responsibilities, maybe you need a new challenge?
