How To Use Buzz Words

Now let's go over the best way to use these words. And keep in mind, don't overload your cover letter with too many words or you may sound as if you're simply fabricating your skills. Here's an example of how to use a few of these words.

Don't Say:

"I helped put our displays together at the salon."

Do Say:

"As a team-player at Empire Beauty School's student salon, I was instrumental in the re-organization of our sales and merchandise displays."

Don't Say:

"I did a great job on a couple clients and their friends started coming to the salon after that."

Do Say:

"My attention to detail and dedication to my clients' needs helped me to cultivate new client relationships for the salon."

Remember, never lie about what you've done or haven't done. Be honest about your accomplishments, but use buzz words to add a little flair and professionalism to how you present those accomplishments in your cover letter.
