Watch Your Words In The Job Search

by  • June 04, 2014
The Grammarly team collected 500 active job postings, including marketing and engineering jobs, from the top 100 most profitable companies in the United States. We then assessed how each company used language in these listings to express hiring priorities.
  • Hiring companies do not want someone who views a “job” as “work”
  • “Experience” is more highly valued by hiring companies than “skills”
  • Job seekers should use their cover letter and resume to talk about instances of teamwork vs. individual contributions
  • Hiring companies still prefer candidates with a degree versus relevant experience
We’ve summarized our findings using this handy infographic:
