In search of the perfect word

A blog post from Career Hub reminds us that we need to agonize over our word choices when we draft our resume. Our personalities and skill sets are unique and we should avoid falling into the habit of using the same tired words on our resume that everybody else uses. Sure, it’s more difficult to find the perfect word to describe ourselves but if we don’t strive for precise phrasing, how will the employer ever learn about what sets us apart form other job-seekers ?

And of course a thorough reading od a job posting usually provides sufficient ammunition for the creative resume (and cover letter) writer.

The employer is giving you a few hints; take heed of the words they’re offering. Have you included any of their words in your resume, or in your interview with them?
