enthusiasmThis sign appeared in front of a public library in a sleepy town in Vermont. Not every letter is perfectly straight.

Yet I remembered it.

The LinkedIn take-away: adding emphasis and color to anything you say in your profile and anything you produce to complement it, makes you geometrically more compelling and noticeable.

Memorable too.

Your resume is not a demonstration of your enthusiasm, and it says nothing about your present and future as THE candidate for whatever you are seeking.

Your career story, told in your own words, I plus power verbs, past, present, future, is what makes your profile remarkable, memorable for the reader, enough to contact you to know more.

Don’t be dull. As I always say, wallflowers never get to dance.
