Hello, folks. Welcome back to www.engvid.com, where today, I'm going to be presenting to
you some of the very best words in the English language to be putting into your applications for work,
and also directly into your CVs and résumés. CVs is the name in the UK;
résumé would be the word in America for your list of work, achievements, and titles.
So, what I'm going to be doing today is talking through a list of adjectives to describe yourself
in a covering letter. We're going to be looking at good words for saying what you are able
to do, and some good verbs for describing what you did in your last job. Hope it helps
you get that important job.
So, when it comes to talking about yourself... By the way, I just want to make sure because
I want you to remember these words after the lesson, so just before we start talking about these words,
can you make sure you write them down? Okay? So just write them down on a scrap
of paper, and then you'll have them afterwards as well. Okay? Maybe press pause.
And welcome back.
So, "accomplished", now, this can be a verb or an adjective. The noun would be an accomplishment,
I'll write that here. An accomplishment is like an achievement, it's something good that
you have done. So, this is obviously in the past simple if I'm using it as a verb. I accomplished
whatever. But if I'm talking about it as an adjective, I would say: "I am an accomplished
editor, having worked for five years as..." Okay? This is a really useful sort of grammatical
structure when you're saying what you can do. "Having worked as..." Okay? There should
be sort of a space in here. Or: "Having done this for so many years." So if you want to...
"Having worked as", whatever the job title is and then the amount of years or months.
Okay? So, you either have accomplished something or you are an accomplished engineer, computer
programmer, whatever it is that you do. I'm sure it's something cool.
Obviously, you have an advanced level of English because you've been watching Benjamin on engVid.
Yeah? So, "advanced" is an adjective to describe when you're really good at something.
"I am an advanced judo player." Yeah? "I am an advanced karate." Yeah? Advanced is pretty good.
"Committed", yeah? Committed. Everyone go like this, committed. Yeah? That means I turn
up every day. I don't take any sick days. Yeah? Going to get physical today guys, going
to get off your bums, making some moves. Committed, you turn up every day. So this can also be
used as a verb. So you could be committed to. "I am committed to my wife." Yeah? "I
am committed to the Green Party", whatever it is. The Conservatives, labour. Yeah? Committed
to is when you have... You give your... Give yourself to something. Yeah? But if you are
using it as an adjective: "I am a committed person", means I turn up every day.
"Promoted", so this is probably a word you would stick into the résumé. Yeah? Or the
CV. So: "I worked at Lloyds Bank and within... Within six months, I was promoted." Everyone
go like this, promoted. It means lifted up. Okay? You go up. Promoted. Okay? So, within
six months, I was promoted. So in a covering letter, you can talk... You can talk shit
and say you're really great. So I was promoted which shows that I am an accomplished, an
accomplished blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, whatever it is, the job you do.
Now, when we're talking about what you can do, here are some useful little verbs. So,
"provide" means provide, I give analysis, provide analysis. "Analysis" is the looking
at the positives, the minus. Yeah? You're kind of looking at a scientist with your spectacles,
what's good, what's bad. Provide, give analysis. Yeah?
"Deliver", again, let's think about our newspaper boy, he delivers the newspaper through, you
know, puts it by your door. Maybe in America, you see him delivering like this. So, you
can either think deliver or deliver. Yeah? Deliver. In the context of a résumé, you
could deliver... Deliver excellence. You could deliver a program of. Yeah? You can deliver
a training program. Yeah? A training. Something you did. This is what we're avoiding. We are
avoiding: "can", "do", and "make" because you're not beginners anymore. You are my advanced
students, so we're going to used advanced verbs. Okay?
"Design", hmm, design, design, design means think and make. Design, so an architect designs.
If I am putting some theatre together, I will design the "mise en scène". Yeah? The scenery.
Okay? I design. So I put a bit of red, put a bit of yellow. Now, what can you design?
You can design promotional material. Yeah? Promotional. Long word. Or you can design
the marketing.
"Enhance" means to make better, to make better. Enhance, make good. Yeah? Enhance, put it
better.
"Generate", we use... So the colocation of "generate" often goes with sales. You generate
sales. So, you generate sales. Above the line. Yeah? If you're above the line, you're operating
in profit, so we want to be up here with our sales. Generate sales means more... Getting
a bit mad here. Isn't it? More money for your boss. Okay. All all right? We all still okay?
I want to make sure that you concentrate until the end of my lesson today, so we're going
to do something a little bit different. I want you to stand up off your chair and I
want you to take a pen because you've all been writing down these words, haven't you,
everybody? So, take your pen and we're going to make a figure of eight with your pen. Okay?
So we're going to go around here and then we're going to take it with this side, we're
going to take it down to your feet and you're going to have to change over, and then we're
going to go up here and down. So you're going to use both hands and you're going to go down
to your feet, and you're going to make a figure of eight. Okay. How are you doing? Yeah. Remember
to swap hands. Very good. Can you touch your toes? Yeah, go on, bend down, and up we go.
Good. And come back up. Well done. Hopefully we're ready now for our next little section.
Just trying to get you to use your right and left side brain. I'm showing off today. Right.
So, this is language for talking about what you did at your last job. So, obviously, these
words are great in an interview. Okay? You send your CV, they really like you, so you
go and say: "Hello, I'm", blah, blah, blah. Okay? And you say all of these words. So write
these down. "Co-ordinated", "managed", "developed", "redesigned", "implemented", "launched", "maximised",
and "provided". You're super-fast, aren't you? Yeah. Right.
So, "co-ordinate", if we are looking at a map-yeah?-of England. Yeah? Super good map
with a bit of island over here. We won't worry about Europe. Now think about co-ordinate,
you think about co-ordinate on a map. So, the co-ordinates on a map lead me to this
place and it's York. Okay? So, the co-ordinate is guessing everything together. Put it...
Okay? So it's planning, planning in detail. Co with all the details, bringing all the
details together.
"Managed" is similar, you're managing people. Yeah? Bringing them together, make sure they're
doing this. So, in my last job, I co-ordinated a sales contract. I... What did I do? I was
promoted and I got given, as a reward, a new pen. Okay, so I co-ordinated a sales contract.
Manage, you're managing people.
"Develop", if you're developing... If I'm developing this map, I'm making it better.
So, I know that it's actually a bit more kind of like this and that East Anglia is bigger.
So, developed means to make it better.
"Redesign", if I'm redesigning it, I might not like the red anymore; I might want to
put some blue in. Okay? So I'm making it... Making it a little bit different. "Re" means
doing again.
"To implement", kind of means to start. So, if I'm implementing this map of Britain as
the new map of Britain, I tell David Cameron: "This is the new map of Britain." Okay? And
we start giving this map to everyone in Britain. It's the new map of Britain. Okay? So you
might implement a new policy. -"What did you do in your last job?" -"Well, I implemented
a new policy. It was very effective." Yeah? Implemented a new policy. "Policy" is basically
a rule, an idea.
"Launch", yeah? Again, it kind of means started.
"Maximise", I'm sure you've had Pepsi Max, it's like maximum. "Wah, I've got loads of
sugar." Yeah? So to the max. "I maximised profit", or whatever it is that you did. "I
maximised library books", I don't know.
"Provided" means give.
Now, I've given to you. I want you to give back to me by going to www.engvid.com and
doing the quiz. Yeah? You've already written down these words, these excellent words. I
want to make sure that you know them 100%. Okay? Do the quiz, subscribe to my YouTube
channel, if you will. And if you're really keen, if you really want to get advanced,
and promoted, and deliver excellent in the workplace, then you might consider checking
out Exquisite English; the link's somewhere around there. Okay, nice to see you. Bye.
