“I can do this job and I will do this job” basically means that you have the skills and expertise to carry out job responsibilities 100%, and that you are actually willing and eager to perform those duties. This phrase is something that you must remember when crafting your job-seeking documents and going to an interview.
When creating your resume and cover letter, keep that motto in mind and let your commitment shine through in your writing. This can be a bit harder to do in a resume. The perfect place to highlight your skills and years of professional experience is in a profile paragraph directly below your contact information and job title. Briefly indicate which traits you possess that are desired by the company. Also include a sentence or two describing your dedication to helping the company achieve its goals and philosophy.
Since a cover letter gives a person a better opportunity to let their personality shine through, this is the chance to also highlight your ability and commitment to doing the job right. As with your resume, showcase all of your related skill sets, education, years of experience, and past responsibilities listed in the job advertisement or description. Make sure that you actually do possess the specific qualities before putting them on paper. Even if you do not have absolutely everything they are looking for, you can highlight what you do have instead. Always make sure that what you put in your documents is the truth. If a potential employer asks you about qualifications or past jobs, be able to back up what you have written.
Now that you have landed a job interview, it is important to still keep this slogan in mind. A company has by now narrowed down the list of potential candidates who meet the job requirements. What will make you stand above the rest is your desire to do the job and do it well. Make sure you communicate your enthusiasm about past positions held, and this future, sought-after position. A company wants to know that the person they hire is committed, energetic, passionate, eager, and will not tire of the job. At the end of the job interview if you so choose, you can even actually say the words “I can do this job and I will do this job”.
After going to an interview, it is crucial that you send a thank you letter. As mentioned previously, provide a list of bullet points outlining why you are able to do the job, with points at the end demonstrating that you are eager to do the job. Let your passion and enthusiasm be clearly conveyed in this last and possible deal-sealing document. Remember, there is nothing wrong with using the words “I can do this job and I will do this job”.
