I guessed most of my expertise lies in Business and Community Service stuff. I have a hard time classifying my area of work and volunteering experience. I also added knitting as an area of expertise in Other. ;-) Maybe I should have added gardening and animal husbandry?
I put Education/Training/Library and Computer/Mathematics. What I’m an expert in is one college’s degree audit system because a) I’m good at coding (not programming–more like putting equations in Excel) and b) I’m good at explaining to the users how to do things and translating in conversations between the users and programmers. I’m also certified to teach math and have scored math teacher certification tests, so those kind of belong in those categories as well.
After doing clerical work for so long, I’ve also gotten good at checking for accuracy and being efficient with clerical type stuff. I am also above average at reading, personal finance (like all your readers), typing, embroidery, ballroom dancing, and maybe cooking.
I am also an expert at figuring out what to do with myself all day, unlike some people who fear retirement for non-monetary reasons.
What do you call “figuring shit out”? I clicked business (among other things – I’m good at sales even though I don’t like it much) and administration, but what I’m best at is going through a bunch of records and finding where the process went wrong. Mostly with billing, but I’ve done it in a lot of contexts.
I didn’t realize you could check more than one! I checked medicine/healthcare because, duh. Within that my areas of expertise are communication skills, behavior change counseling and end-of-life care. My personal motto is “diagnosis is my life”. My brain works diagnostically. I can’t help it.
Other less lucrative areas of expertise: American mystery novels (especially written by women) and crossword puzzles.
