Competence

Competence is the set of demonstrable characteristics and skills that enable, and improve the efficiency of, the performance of a job.

 
  • What's the best way to talk about weaknesses at job interviews? When you’re asked about weaknesses, it's important to respond carefully. You don't want to cast any doubt on your ability to do the job. However, you also don’t want to come across as arrogant or dishonest by claiming that you don’t have any weaknesses.


  • "What is your greatest strength?" may seem like one of the easier job interview questions you'll be asked. But for many candidates, it can be tricky—either they're too modest in their response or they fail to highlight on-target strengths.

    In the candidate's experience, the interview is one of the most critical moments - and also the champion of complaints. According to the Linkedin Talent Trends report, 83% of applicants say that a negative experience in the first contact with the company can lead to the vacancy. 

     

Competence

A job competency can be defined as the skills, traits, qualities or characteristics that contribute to a person’s ability to perform responsibilities in an organization. It is a cluster of knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) that an individual possesses.

 

The competencies are generally divided into two categories, threshold competencies that an individual requires to perform the job at the workplace, and differentiating competencies are those that are present in superior performers but are not present in the average performers.
