Use These Winning Words on Your English CV

Using the correct language can catch your potential employer’s eye faster than than you can say “you’re hired”. Bear in mind that the average recruiter skims through thousands of CVs every single day scouring for some motivation to shortlist only a few lucky ones. At this stage he or she will look for some signs of employability and throwing in the right words can go a long way in terms of helping them identify the traits that make someone a good fit for the company.

These words are powerful enough on their own but if there isn’t any real substance to back them, it’s probably better to stay away from them. Also there is no need to use them like if there was no tomorrow, better if you just sprinkle a few of them around your cv.

So, still with us? Below is a bunch of some of the most powerful words that can be used on a CV to stand out:
