This week, let’s take a minute to fully grasp the power behind the words we use. Words which we may have intended to bring great impact, or words that just slipped out in the midst of a mindless utterance. Maybe what was said was fully thought through before spoken, or maybe not. Maybe your words were carefully chosen in the middle of a loving conversation and meant to bring encouragement. Maybe your words were screamed in a fit of rage and every bit intended to be full of shame and disgust. Our words live on long after we’ve finished with them, and we often disregard the impact that they can have on others.
Our words, particularly in written form, serve as a very powerful tool when seeking a new job. Whether you are setting up a new profile on LinkedIn or describing your greatest career accomplishments on your resume, each word means something. If you really stop and think about it, there is a level of decision making that is affected with every word you write. Some hiring managers will be further intrigued by your words and continue to read on, wanting to know more about you and what you have to offer as a potential candidate. Others, however, may read a few lines of your resume or cover letter and make the decision to stop there and go on to the rest of the stack. Each word has an impact, and each word takes you one step further down the road.
The question is…do you want to continue walking down a road that leads to more dead ends and no job opportunities? Or do you want to reroute yourself and reevaluate your process so that your steps are taking you down the road toward a brighter career and a job that you will love? I think we’d all agree that the second option sounds a lot better!
