Get off the "Meh" List

You would never use the following sentence in a cover letter or in an interview:
  • I am a resourceful, resilient, confident, coachable, versatile, loyal and principled person.

Bleah! All buzzwords and no substance.

Today's link is to an article that explains how to demonstrate you have those qualities, rather than merely proclaiming you have them. As in creative writing: show, don't tell. Give the story, the example, the evidence, rather than the trite and overused adjective.
