Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 29, 2:28 PM

When you are telling your story it's important to use the right words. Here is a very quick article to keep handy on how to best tell your story on resumes and during job interviews.


You want the job, right? Then getting the correct language down is key. As is sharing your stories.


The main difference that I see between the 2 lists (words to avoid and words to leverage) is that the desirable words really focus on the results you helped produce. The first list is words that tend to describe the last job you had. Boring! 


When you share stories about the results you produced (money/time/effort saved or generated) using the words in the second list, interviewers perk up. Because that's what they want to hear. And that's how you stand out from the crowd.


ANYBODY in business can benefit from these distinctions. So print this list out and use it. Test them out to experience results.
