40 Incorrectly Used Words That Can Make You Look Dumb

While I like to think I know a little about business writing, I still fall into a few word traps. (Not to mention a few cliché traps.)

Take the words "who" and "whom." I rarely use "whom" when I should -- even when spell check suggests "whom" I think it sounds pretentious. So I use "who."

And then I sound dumb.

Just like one misspelled word can get your resume tossed onto the "nope" pile, one incorrectly used word can negatively impact your entire message. Fairly or unfairly, it happens -- so let's make sure it doesn't happen to you.

Pianogram

Pianogram | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it

This is what you get when you cross a histogram and piano keys to show note distribution of songs. It's the pianogram. View examples such as Fur Elise or the classic Chopsticks, or punch in your own MIDI-formatted song for a taste of the distribution ivories.

Microsoft CEO's sexist view of women, dressed up as advice

Microsoft CEO's sexist view of women, dressed up as advice | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it

Women, she writes, are penalized when they negotiate better salaries. “For men, there is truly no harm in asking,” Sandberg writes. “However, when a woman negotiates on her own behalf, she violates the perceived gender norm. Both male and female colleagues often resist working with a woman who has negotiated for a higher salary because she’s seen as more demanding than a woman who refrained from negotiating. Even when a woman negotiates successfully for herself, she can pay a longer-term cost in goodwill and future advancement.”

PIRatE Lab's insight:

All of you need to do your homework when it comes to getting hired; EVERYONE OF YOU should be asking for a fair wage.  While some of the positions you may be starting at will offer a smaller amount of money than you would like, you should always ask for what you want and go from there.

40 Ways to Screw Up a PowerPoint Slide

40 Ways to Screw Up a PowerPoint Slide | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
Bad PowerPoint design may be just as detrimental to your presentation as smelling like a horse. When you have poorly designed slides, a few things happen: your professionalism is questioned (because you essentially tell the people looking at your PowerPoint that you don't know how to create professional work); your audience members get distracted as they toggle between looking at your bad design and listen to what you're actually saying (and, in the end, they don't really ingest either); and your audience just gets bored or annoyed--which is about the worst possible outcome when presenting. Obviously, there are a number of…

Chart of Cousins

Chart of Cousins | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it

I have a big family, and it seems at every get-together there are new additions and more kids running around. At some point, I lost track of how I was related to everyone else. I mean, I know that some people are my cousins and I can trace everyone back to a common ancestor, but I'm not sure what to call everyone.


So after the last get-together, I figured it out.
