#132: Identify Your Skill Sets

Many people start their job search by looking at the job titles that sound most fitting to their career goals. While this technique may prove to be successful for some, Glassdoor career expert Scott Dobroski suggests job seekers look at the required skills of a position instead. By doing this, Dobroski says employees will be able to identify the skill sets they already possess and the jobs that best match their experiences.

Also, since job titles are constantly changing, staying focused on the required skills of a position can open your search up to job titles that you didn't even know matched your expertise.
