If you’re meticulous, you’re thorough and self-managing and trustworthy. You realize that your work is part of an ecosystem of other people’s projects and you don’t let anybody down. You can be relied upon to do your job, do it well, and deliver whatever needs to be done. You can totally brag here at this point, and throw in a mention of any accomplishments or awards you may have earned along the way.
You don’t quit until the job is done (and done well). You’ll put in the extra work until the solution is found. You’re able to adapt to challenging circumstances and find the work-around that no one else can see. You’re the kind of employer everybody wants because you’re willing to do things outside the purview of your job description—provided it makes sense for the company and for the goals of your team.
This conveys that you’re “results-oriented,” as well. It’s always good to round off a list of descriptors of yourself with something that conveys a bit of humility—your willingness to sacrifice your own time and ambitions now and then for the good of the group.
If you’d rather, “ambitious” works here, as well—any adjective that shows you are not just showing up to work for the paycheck and the free coffee is great.
These words prove that you are in it to win it—both to advance yourself in your career and, in the meantime, to advance the company and its most important goals.
“Team player” transitions easily enough to a description of how you’re also a “leader”…
for those of you who want to score that last bonus point.
It suggests that you’re a people person, you are effective at disseminating information, you care about connecting with your clients and coworkers, and you are intelligent enough to do so clearly and professionally.
Plus, you can segue this into concrete examples of how you used your communication skills to problem solve.
