Far too many people struggle in job interviews to define their value because our minds are wired around the virtue of modesty.  We struggle with the appropriateness of bragging about ourselves, even when it comes to our skills in a job interview, the one place where a little bragging is not only acceptable its required.

If you are struggling to come up with four or five strengths for a value proposition, distill it to your one incontestable value. Hint: a term like “experienced executive,” or some other generic phrase will not win you any points.  It has to reflect something about your professional ability that is unique or powerful.

When I was a practicing executive recruiter, my incontestable value was that in 25 years I never had a CEO search miss-hire. The average tenure for my CEO placements was more than 7.4 years. This was something about which I was proud.

What are you proud of?  What is your incontested value?  Are you using it to sell yourself in job interviews?  You have it. It’s there. We’ll help you find it.
