Core values guide the way we behave.

In this exercise we help you to understand your core values and how they shape you as a person. Knowing your values will help you to stand out from the crowd, show how you can bring value to employers and provide you with an internal road map that helps you direct your energy towards a career that motivates and inspires you every day. As part of your profile that will be sent to potential employers, we will be sharing information on your values. Employers like to know your values and understand what motivates you!

In this module you’ll learn:

  • What a great digital profile looks like

  • The importance of knowing your values

  • What your values mean to you

  • How to create a values statement that will really appeal to employers
