It wasn’t until I started reading, a lot that I realized how important being able to share your thoughts with others is important. If you can convey a thought in less words, that’s a skill. A paragraph or so? Blog about it. 140-characters or less? Tweet it.
Professionally, I look at resumes. I learned this the hard way: stick to 1 page. You may have a lot of experience but you have to use that to your advantage. List what’s relevant to the job you’re applying to and the job you want. For your cover letter, tell a damn good story. Remember, recruiters read a lot of these. Make it worth reading, but keep it brief. Do the talking during the interview.
I read a lot of user reviews as part of my research before I make a purchase online. Recently, I was on yelp and I could not understand what this person was describing. I even tried using the sentences before and after to figure out what the entree was that this person ordered. It wasn’t until I saw their photo they uploaded that I learned what “Not chos” were. Not chos are NACHOS. This person ordered NACHOS. Thank goodness for that caption. Sometimes, less is more and Not chos are NACHOS…
Never forget, a picture’s worth a thousand words.
