Self-knowledge is the first step towards choosing a suitable internship / career. If you know yourself, you know better which internship you want to apply for and you can better assess the extent to which internships may suit you. Self-knowledge helps you to better focus on searching for a suitable organization to apply to and to distinguish yourself from other candidates in your application. Therefore, it is important to who you are, what you can do, and what you want.

On this page you can find a number of modules that can help you create a self-analysis. Under the heading "Who am I and what can I do" contains modules that can give you insight into your personality and skills. "What do I want and what I think is important" can help you get clear idea of your motives and desires.

The resulting information can be displayed in a 'Personal profile'. This profile provides insight into where your strengths lie and which areas could be improved slightly. This understanding will help you in making future career choices.
