Sell your job skills with three words

Describe yourself in 3 words Image source:

Sum up yourself and your skills in three words.

This strategy can be very useful in preparing yourself for upcoming job interviews. Colin Beveridge, a UK management adviser suggests that doing so can be a powerful exercise in critical self-evaluation.

Beveridge suggests that before heading into a job interview, you should take the necessary time and come up with a short three word description of what exactly it is that you do in your work life.

So perhaps we should substitute a new interview question: please describe what you do in three words…

.....incredibly valuable for the reflective insights and communicative skills that a properly considered answer will reveal.

Here are some examples of good 3 word self evaluations.

  • Help people think (Beveridge)
  • Make information useful (Mine)
  • Honestly Simplify Business
  • I think differently
  • Nanotech information conduit
  • Evaluate, Encourage, & Execute

What would your three word summary look like?
