Self-Assessment Questionnaire

When trying to discover and define your personal interest areas, think about the newspaper and magazine articles you turn to first.  Are you more interested in the business section or the front page?  Make a list of the news items, which have grabbed your attention over the last six months.  Also, consider your favorite leisure activities- do they translate into job skills?  For example, someone who enjoys entertaining may prove to be a good event coordinator.

Look at experiences from any point in your past.

1.

List two tasks or projects you worked on that you found engaging and rewarding.  Why did you like them?  (another way to look at this question is… Describe one accomplishment or achievement in your life that your were proud of and that you found satisfying and enjoyable).  The experience need not be limited to a work-related accomplishment.
