Have you ever considered interviewing yourself? Not necessarily in preparation for a job — just to reframe your mindset towards noticing your plus points that make you desirable.
A self interview might start with: Tell me about yourself? What would you say?
Next it might move on to: Why are you the person for this role? What are your greatest strengths? Tell me about your proudest achievements?
After focusing on all your positives, questions would move onto how you handled adversity: What do you consider your weaknesses? Talk about a challenge or conflict you’ve faced and how you dealt with it? Tell me about a time you disagreed with another’s decision — how did you address your objections? Can you share some details about your failures? What mistakes have you made and how did you move forward?
Then the discussion would likely shift to discuss your ability to lead others: Tell me about your leadership skills? How do you deal with pressure and stress? How do you prioritize?
Lastly, the focus might turn to your dreams: What makes you unique? What’s your dream job? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
And the biggie: What can you tell me that’s not on your resume, that I should know, but few do know about you?
Asking yourself these questions can help you focus on your positives; help you appreciate the benefits from all the adversity you’ve overcome; and, focus your attention on what you might like to do next. Let me know what you think!
