Chances are, however, you're more clued into your skills than you might believe. For example, think of the last project you worked on – what did you love? What did you put off because you don't like doing it? "Think back in your life about a handful of times that you felt the most comfortable. When you were doing something that was engrossing to you. That made you excited. What were you doing? We are most comfortable when we’re doing something that we’re skilled at. That’s when we're in our comfort zone," writes Sarah Peterson on Unsettle.org.
At the same time, identifying your best skills isn't just about the hard skills (such as being able to write code, or proficiency with a software suite). You also need to consider your soft skills, which could include things like communication, time management and problem-solving abilities. When trying to determine your best skill, consider both hard and soft skills, as both types will be important to any employer you might seek work with.
