Finding the Skills You Are Good At

When you are choosing an online training course, or are looking to change career options, you need to know what things you are good at and what you enjoy doing.  If you can find a job which involves you doing things you both are good at AND enjoy, then you are on the fast track to a happy and successful career!

Finding out what you are good at is relatively easy.  There are lots of online quizzes and tests which claim to help you figure out your key skills, so these are a great place to begin.  Think about the things you do in your current job or day to day life which you find easy.  Are any of these things transferrable to other jobs?

Thinking of your favourite pasttimes, think about which things you truly love doing.  See if there are any skills which cross over between the things you like doing and the things you do on a daily basis.
