    • Q1: The first step in your job search begins with an honest self-evaluation.
      • TRUE - By taking a close look at the things, which you have achieved during your life and career, you can begin to get an idea of the kinds of things you might want to do in the future. Knowing and expressing what you can do well will help you to: * Build self-confidence, a key to success; * Locate the position that fits you best; * Communicate effectively in interviews and meetings. An accomplishment is an activity that gives you pleasure, fulfillment, and a feeling of pride and success. It can be large or small in scope, routine or extraordinary, frequent or once only, work-related or personal. These accomplishments represent you functioning at your best, sometimes overcoming difficulties, and believing in yourself and your ideas.
    • Q2: The definition of 'ability' is something you do well, a competence, or a talent.
      • TRUE - Not every ability, however, is supported by an interest. Some of the things you do well you may do for survival reasons, or simply because "you have to". An interest is something that intrigues you or motivates you positively. Not every interest is supported by talent or ability. Like everyone else, you have some abilities that match your areas of interest. These are your strengths. By determining your greatest strengths, confirmed by your accomplishments, you can define the functions you will perform best and most happily in your next position. You will want to define your career objective in terms of these strengths rather than in terms of a specific job title.
    • Q3: Well-qualified job applicants can interview poorly when they don't ask the right questions early in the interview.
      • TRUE - By asking the right questions at the right time, you'll get information that will help you give the interviewer better answers and convince them you're suitable for the position.
