Have you ever met those folks who are just a bit “too” into what they’re doing?
Yeah, me too.
That being said, I respect the heck out of them. Experts in their field, masters of their craft, or as I like to call them, thorough. These individuals don’t skip the details and they know their stuff.
Speaking of, if the “stuff” were ever to hit the fan and you were in need, you’d want people around you who don’t forget or ignore the little things. You’d want those who are thorough and have thought of everything. Whether you’re going camping, installing a new product, or you’re looking for a new opportunity, you want to do it the right way.
So be thorough. Be thorough in your resume writing, your exploration of positions, and your interview preparation. Make sure no stone is left unturned.
Don’t spare the details, adore the details.
Do you really want to be someone who is unprepared?
Do you really want to leave an interview with more questions than you started with?
Do you want to feel flat-footed when asked certain questions about your background, resume, or qualifications?
The clear answer is NO.
Here’s to those who go the extra mile and define the word thorough. Thank you for figuring it out for the rest of us and thank you for inspiring us to be better. Today, let’s aim to be more thorough because we all know it’s worth it.
