This week's lecture, readings and discussion focuses on the importance of self-assessment in the career development process. This assignment will help you focus on your intended career and your perception of the skills you possess that are required to be successful.

Step 1: Values, Interests and Skills

1. Review the following information related to the importance of Career Self-Assessment.

I am confident in my ability to read and write in an understandable, coherent, and persuasive manner. Moreover, I am confident - and "favorite" - my strong interpersonal skills. I have no trouble talking to others and collaborating on group projects, and I am confident that this skill will make me a valuable asset in any modern company. Finally, I am proud of my computer skills. I am proficient in Microsoft Office, iWork, Final Cut Pro, and have developed something of a "photoshopping hobby."
