Around 75% of all job postings describe the job as “fantastic” or an “exciting opportunity”.

Curiously, only about 10% of all job postings tell the reader why the job is fantastic or exciting.

The missing 15% are the recruiters who go to the effort of finding synonyms for “fantastic” and “exciting”.

If you’d like to be one of this exclusive 15% of recruiters who don’t fall into the trap of using overworked clichés, here’s a list of alternative adjectives you can use to describe your job vacancies…

Tremendous
Remarkable
Terrific
Enormous
Huge
Striking
Phenomenal
Monumental
Overwhelming
Thrilling
Exhilarating
Stirring
Rousing
Stimulating
Intoxicating
Electrifying
Invigorating
Moving
Inspiring
Gripping
Compelling
Sensational
Powerful
Dramatic
Shocking
Startling
Hair-raising
Explosive
Cliffhanging
Mind-blowing

Now you can write things like “This sensational company have a mind-blowing opportunity…”

That’ll get the best candidates beating a path to your door.

Did you know that the word cliché was originally French for the sound of a printing plate which prints the same thing over and over? I’ve added this piece of trivia because I felt that you ought to learn at least one thing from reading this blog.

By the way, those stats I quoted are made up. They feel real though.
