KNOW YOUR VALUE. It’s a simple and sometimes overused adage.
Though, it is important to consider.
I was recently reminded of this concept when on a job search. Interviewers ask a lot of questions about yourself and how you work. I encountered deceptively simple questions like, tell us about yourself, with less time than it takes to settle into your seat.
The question of value invariably arises – what value are you, to us?
Lacking any standardized means of quantifying it, we must define our value ourselves. Think it through carefully – that new job depends on it.
What is my professional value?
I’m committed to honest work in difficult parts of the world.
It seems there is a market for that. At least for now.
What is your professional value? Let us know.
