What's your Superpower?

And can you describe it in one word?













Is the term Superpower a bit overused in today's job market?


YES


Is it still helpful to understand what your Superpower is?


Also, YES


When asked "What is your superpower?" what's really being asked is

"๐‘คโ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ก ๐‘ ๐‘˜๐‘–๐‘™๐‘™ ๐‘‘๐‘œ ๐‘ฆ๐‘œ๐‘ข โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ฃ๐‘’ ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ก ๐‘–๐‘  ๐‘–๐‘›๐‘”๐‘Ÿ๐‘Ž๐‘–๐‘›๐‘’๐‘‘ ๐‘–๐‘› ๐‘ฆ๐‘œ๐‘ข๐‘Ÿ ๐‘๐‘’๐‘–๐‘›๐‘”?"


Time to think beyond technical or learned skills here and look closely at your natural abilities and skills. At its core, an organization needs individuals who can help solve problems, and in particular, a pressing problem that may be limiting their growth.


What special power can you contribute, as a job applicant, to solving this pressing problem?


Now, narrow it down to just...one...word


It may seem complicated to do, but your whole professional presence and power can be built around ONE simple, yet impactful word!


Imagine the power of being able to tell someone that your Superpower is being:

ingenious.


One impactful word that is loaded with meaning!


Ingenious means that you:

demonstrate exceptional creativity, originality, and cleverness in solving problems, coming up with innovative ideas, or creating unique solutions. It often suggests an ability to think outside the box and find inventive approaches to challenges.


Does this word describe you to a tee? Are you the type of person who, when faced with a problem, has come up with a creative solution even when others haven't? Did you discover a need and find a unique solution? Can you share an example of this?


Once you have your one-word Superpower, it becomes easier and clearer how to build your brand and your presence, use it to your advantage in applications and interviews, and become that hero that a company may be searching for!
