Mr Forrest is saddened that most CVs are simply 5 pages of academic, curricular activities and career history. What is sadly missing:

  1. 1.Your strengths and Core Competence which you bring to the company.

  2. 2.Your own achievements in the last 10 years based on your Core Competence and is measured in metric quantitative terms.

  3. 3.Goals in your career.

David believes this is missing because most candidates do not even know their own strength and merely quote their “duties” working, hoping this will sync with the job they have applied for.

For example, how many will confidently state “My goals are in 2 years to lead a sales team to penetrate the pharmacy retail to own 10% of the shelf space for Rose Hip supplement and a sustainable market share to fund further growth in distribution?”

David Forrest will identify your Core Competence

Your Core Competence can take various forms, including technical/subject matter know-how, a reliable process and/or close relationships with customers and suppliers. It may also include product development or culture, such as employee dedication.

Your Core Competence can also be powerful execution ability or task management/result oriented.

Once David Forrest identifies your Core Competence with Chinese astrology Bazi and Zi Wei Dou Shu, you will then be able to integrate this into a selected company business unit and become successful in your career.

Your Core Competence Integrated into a Business Unit Gives Competitive Advantage

Your long-term career success and happiness is identifying and building your Core Competence goals and strategic intent into the business unit of the company you work for, and to make sure your Core Competence with the company/profession required are in sync, which ultimately gives you a personal competitive advantage over the competition for these 3 main reasons:

  1. 1.Breadth of Application -  Your Core Competence offers the company a wide variety of markets to enter.

  2. 2.Difficult for the competition to imitate this same Core Competence.

  3. 3.Meaningful and significant contribution to the end user’s benefits and user’s experiences over the competitor’s product/service and builds a loyal evangelist client.

Core Competence is your innate born ability; you cannot work for a company which requires a different set of your Core Competence and try to train your weakness into a Core Competence, as this is both futile and will lead to your unhappiness and failure.
