When you have created a list of the qualifications for the job, make a list of your assets and match them to the job requirements.

Create a list of up to 10 assets, including skills, certifications, experiences, professional qualifications and abilities, computer skills, and knowledge bases ready to share with the interviewer. Be sure your assets correlate directly with the skills and abilities required by the company.

Review your list, and the job requirements, prior to the interview so you're ready to share them during the interview.

You'll be ready to answer job specific interview questions designed to determine if you have the knowledge and skills needed to perform the job.
