Whether your interviewer is asking “how would you describe yourself in three words” or “how would your colleagues describe you” or any other variation, you always need to be mindful of the words you’re using. There are some words that you should never use in an interview:


Use instead: Logical, Fast Learner, Quantitative


Use instead: Team Player, Outgoing, Enthusiastic


Use instead: Point out your relevant skills and experience


Use instead: Focused, Detail-Oriented, Dedicated


Use instead: Employ the “show don’t tell” strategy and state only facts
