What Makes Your Job Search Unique?
“I praise you for I am fearfully
and wonderfully made.”
There are no two people exactly alike. Can you grasp that! Out of the billions of people on the planet, no two are precisely the same. Even identical twins are not really identical.
That means you are truly unique! You are not just another automobile rolled off the assembly line. Your basic parts are the same as the next guy, but how they function, process information, emote, and perceive are all different.
So, in the course of your job search, it’s important to really grasp just how different He made you. Your skills, abilities, talents, gifts, experiences, accomplishments, competencies are all different in this package called Y-O-U.
Your uniqueness can help in your job search…
Your job search is an opportunity to celebrate your uniquenesses, thank God for them, and think about how best to package them in your story, your resume and your interviewing.
When you do that, your job search takes on new meaning. It’s no longer just about finding a job to pay the bills; it’s about finding an opportunity to express your uniqueness in your work deliverables. It’s about finding an organization that empowers you to be who God created you to be as you use your skills, abilities, et al to fill a need they have.
Include God in your job search…
Have you looked at your job search in this way? Have you asked God to help you see yourself as He sees you: as unique individual to contribute to His adventure? Have you made an effort to truly get to know yourself? Maybe it’s time to do so?
- Then your resume will reflect that uniqueness.
- Your story will then incorporate that uniqueness.
- Your summary statement, elevator speech, and interviewing will all communicate something of your uniqueness.
Great Creator, forgive me for my fear and give me eyes to see myself as you see me, and all that’s wrapped up in this package called “me.”
