We've heard that refrain
hundreds of times every elec-
tion season and, while we may
be sick of hearing it, it serves
an important purpose. It
reminds us of the key points
that the candidates want to be
sure we remember as we
decide whether to vote for -
or hire - them. There's a les-
son for introverts - and all job
seekers - in that strategy.
The candidate who doesn't air
such messages (and then sign off
on them publicly) allows the
opponent to define voters' impres-
sions. That clearly puts the can-
didate at a disadvantage.
The lesson for introverts is the
importance of defining our own
message in the job search, which
by our very nature we are often
reluctant to do. We're often
uncomfortable promoting our-
selves, and we tend to downplay
our accomplishments, believing
our work speaks for itself. It does-
n't.The qualities that frequently
describe us - reserved manner,
cool detachment, lack of partic-
ipation - are often misinterpreted
as aloofness, snobbishness, or lack
of interest or enthusiasm.
If we don't set the record
straight by clearly communicating
what we believe others need to
know about us, these false impres-
sions will stand.
Define Your Value, Your
Managing your message doesn't
mean bragging. It means recog-
nizing and communicating the
value you bring to your employ-
What kind of contribution do
you make to the organisation?
• Streamline operations?
• Bring in more customers?
• Increase revenue?
• Reduce costs?
• Improve employee morale?
• Decrease production errors?
This is by no means a complete
list of all of the possibilities! Think
of times you have been recognized
or thanked by management or
co-workers for something you
did, even if it didn't seem partic-
ularly difficult for you to do. We
are often poor judges of our own
contributions and value, so con-
sider what is praised in your per-
formance reviews or how people
describe you when they introduce
you to someone ("She is our go-
to person for any questions about
Microsoft Office" for example).
Once you've identified the kind
of contribution, you can provide
examples. Sharing your success
stories isn't boasting. You're own-
ing your accomplishments and
owning your message. And the
way you do this is simply by
reporting the facts as they
occurred and the specific role you
Remember, nature abhors a
vacuum. Define and communicate
what others need to know about
you so they don't define the mes-
sage for you.
