Describe yourself in 3 words Image source: Zebrabites.com
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?
