Marketing Your Value

September 2014

This month's InnerView Career Q&A addresses a common issue jobseekers run into regardless of age or industry—what to do when you don’t have years of experience behind you but still have plenty to offer a prospective employer. Read on for tips on how to address the matter head on and market your value! 

Q: What advice can you give to candidates—who may not have years of experience but still have worked hard to gain relevant skills—to market their value to potential employees? –J. Orloki, Alexandria, VA

A: Job searching is tricky. It’s tough work and very often feels endless. It can be especially discouraging to new grads or professionals seeking a career change, two groups that have unique experiences behind them that may or may not directly relate to the profession they’d like to enter. So what’s a person to do to increase their exposure even with limited experience? A few tips:

1. For new grads, take stock of the skills you’ve gained from your time in clubs, classes, part time jobs or volunteer work. Professionals looking to change career paths can also do this for skills acquired from their current position and even outside hobbies, so long as they’re transferrable. If you find you’re missing a necessary skill, consider taking a class, obtaining a certificate or even pursuing a graduate degree.
