Some Wisdom About Words

If you research job hunting, you will uncover a lot about technology: digital applications, web interfaces, etherbridges, net branding, media linkage, e-blasts, farcebook, Pinterest, etc. ad infinitum. Don’t get tangled in the tech impositions. Here is the truth about resumes and job hunting: Everything comes down to words. WORDS. It doesn’t matter if you have a video resume, a twitter feed, a blog, a sandwich board, a poster, a passenger pigeon, a Tumblr account, a star-quality photo on your LinkedIn page, a skywriting Cessna or a super app: Everything comes down to words, and words are what we give you.

One promise I will make to you is that I shall never, not in speaking or in writing (other than this one time, to explain), use the word “awesome.”

WORDS. The best tool is not technology or gloss; the best tool is sharply honed, excruciatingly accurate, and incomparably fine writing. This is our metier. In words we trust.

Speaking of words, not many people know that “career” is also a verb; it means to go very fast (“careen” means something else entirely). If you undertake an etymological search, you pass through Latin and Middle French and find “car” and “street,” so you have come to the right place. I can help you “go very fast” (career) in your job search; I can improve your career (noun) success, and my first name is a kind of street. What’s not to like?
