As you work to identify the skills and abilities associated with your career goals, you can begin to develop those competencies. A competency is defined as a demonstrable performance or behavior that is grounded in content and context. There are three components to competency, and each component is demonstrated by specific behavioral indicators:
— Cognitive Skills — This is your ability to analyze; see the importance of observations and events; think critically; analyze solutions and anticipate future events; select the best course of action and problem solve.
— Psychomotor Skills — This is your ability to perform physical tasks; utilize muscle memory to complete routine tasks; and develop skills through job training.
— Interpersonal Skills — This is your ability to work and interact with others.
