Assessing your skills

What do you have to offer?

Assessing your skills will help you to get to know your strengths and work on your weaknesses, which will help you to explore your options

  • Make a skills inventory, list all of your experiences and skills, then ask a friend or family member to think of any skills you've missed off
  • Use the skills word table to help you to articulate your skills for applications
  • Get help discovering your strengths by attending a Careers strengths workshop
  • Try the Jobmi strengths profile

In response to Covid 19, Cappfinity have made their Strengths profile free for the month of April 2020. Complete this questionnaire to build up a picture of your strengths.


When applying for jobs, recruiters are looking for a range of skills to enable them to select who they want to interview. Use these tools to help identify and articulate your skills with relevant examples.


If you have a specific job in mind, you can work on fine tuning the skills and experiences you know you will require for that role.
