ADJECTIVES FOR A CV (THOROUGH)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Welcome to the Daily Vitamin, everyone! I hope your weekend was great. For those of you from Barcelona who had a long weekend, I hope you enjoyed it.

This week's theme is Adjectives for a Curriculum Vitae (CV). Both native English speakers and English learners often have problems writing a CV: it is very hard to describe ourselves without using boring or common language. We hope that this week gives you some unique and useful vocabulary words that you can use to describe yourself on your CV.

As you will see, we will give two examples each day. One is related to a CV and the other is to show how to use this word in normal daily speech.

Today's word is THOROUGH.

Definition: careful about detail.

Example 1: This editing job requires a very thorough person who shows attention to detail.

Example 2: We did a thorough search of the room and we still couldn't find my keys.

What are some synonyms for THOROUGH? Tell us on one of our social media sites; we would love to hear from you.

We will see you tomorrow with another adjective!
