When you draw the Knight of Swords reversed in your career reading, the card signals that you may be acting impulsively right now with your career and that you are likely to realize that your actions will affect your career negatively in the long term.

When you do, you are likely to be judged more harshly. You must always think about the long-term repercussions of your actions when you are making a choice (especially career choices).
Moreover, the Knight of Swords reversed in a career question also means that you are very quick to act or make judgments about other people’s work and behaviors, which can affect your career negatively in the long run. For example, you can be very judgmental of your colleague’s performance, even though you know that the behavior was the result of a difficult personal situation. Or you may come across as very competitive to get ahead in the competition that is going on for the job you want.
