It oftens makes one feel cheap when one is told that one must sell oneself, but these days, since everyone is out there willingly selling themselves, it is important to see yourself as a commodity and you must be willing to sell yourself and your abilities in order to get the best deal. Imagine if your skills and abilities are being given away cheaply, that's not good, and you need to do something about it.

It also means that you should consider all of your good qualities, perhaps work on your weaker ones. Then be willing to talk about yourself very positively when it comes to interview situations or the like. It's important that you are aware of what you have to offer and that your CV and your attire 'sell' you. A weak image or a weak CV will often lead you to fall at the first hurdle.
