Conduct A Gap Analysis: Do You Have What It Takes to Land the Role You Desire?

As you continue to pursue your degree, do you know which career path you want to take? In what types of roles are you interested? For what types of roles are you presently qualified? Do you fully know what is required and expected of roles along your chosen path? Some roles require very specific experience in addition to education. For example, the role of a computer network architect would likely require a knowledge of and proficiency with a particular framework or methodology. If that is what you want to do, do you possess what is required? Simply put, does a “gap” exist between what you want to pursue and what you bring to that role? If you have a gap, what can you do to overcome it?

To answer the questions below, you need to first review advertised postings of jobs in which you are interested by using a job board like this one  ( or niche job boards like board A or board B. Then, select 3 to consider in detail.

Have these 3 job postings in front of you as you answer the questions below.

Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that address the following:

  1. Peruse the requirements of each position that you selected.
    • For each of your selected positions, make a list of the specific requirements that you presently meet.
    • Make a second list of the specific requirements that you do not presently meet for each role. These are the gaps in your candidacy for those positions.
  2. Brainstorm, and write about the things you might be able to do to overcome those gaps.
    • For example, if your gap is specific experience with Agile methodology, then one of your answers could be “Consider an interim role that will expose me to Agile methodology.”
