When it comes to writing the perfect resume, much of it has to do with how it’s worded. Using words and phrases that sound too repetitive, especially if it’s listed job after job, tends to make the resume look a bit too mundane. It suggests, as a job seeker, there is a lack of vocabulary skills. This, oddly enough, is something hiring managers will look at as they filter through one applicant after another to find that ideal candidate to join their company.
Not Under Development
One of the most commonly used words used within resumes and cover letters is the word develop. Although it (and its variations) is not an evil word, it is one that seems to be over-used when an applicant describes themselves.
Yes, the word development seems to sound sophisticated enough. Why not use it?
Hey, we’re not saying to never use the word develop, nor the different extensions of it! What we are suggesting is using alternative words in place of it so that it makes your resume come across as something more professional. The word of develop is okay. There really isn’t anything wrong with it. However, too many applicants use it and to the eyes of a hiring manager or employer, the word develop has become boring.
And, if you want your resume to stand out from the rest of the crowd, the last thing you want to come across is boring!
Break The Mould
The purpose of this article is to provide a step-by-step guide on how to write a resume with wording other than develop (and its extensions). While the rest of the job applicants favour what truly has become an over-used word from the dictionary, your usage of using synonyms similar to develop within your resume will have you break out of the mould as someone who seems to have a vocabulary index that is more evolved.
What Is A Synonym?
According to the Merriam-Webster’s dictionary;
syn·o·nym | \ ˈsi-nə-ˌnim \
Definition of synonym
1: one of two or more words or expressions of the same language that have the same or nearly the same meaning in some or all senses
2a: a word or phrase that by association is held to embody something (such as a concept or quality)a tyrant whose name has become a synonym for oppression
3: one of two or more scientific names used to designate the same taxonomic group
Exploring Synonyms Of Develop
Sticking with Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, we have collected some of their top words from their thesaurus, all synonymous with the word develop that can be put in your resume.
They are as follows;
Exploring The Words
We will now go into further depth about each of the words listed above, explaining and illustrating why each of them makes better alternatives to the word develop (and its extensions). Each word will be also accompanied by what it means in the dictionary, along with its variations. The dictionary reference we are using is from Merriam-Webster.
Acquire “As a customer service agent, acquired extensive knowledge within the retail industry.”
- ac·quire | \ ə-ˈkwī(-ə)r \ acquired; acquiring
1: to get as one’s own:
a: to come into possession or control of often by unspecified means
The team acquired three new players this year.
b: to come to have as a new or added characteristic, trait, or ability (as by sustained effort or natural selection)
acquire fluency in French
bacteria that acquire tolerance to antibiotics
2: to locate and hold (a desired object) in a detector
acquire a target by radar
Let’s compare between the words acquire and develop as a resume entry;
I developed extensive knowledge in the retail industry as a customer service agent.
As a customer service agent, acquired extensive knowledge within the retail industry.
Which of the two sounded better to you? In this case, using the word acquired as opposed to developed is more dynamic.
- am·pli·fy | \ ˈam-plə-ˌfī \amplified; amplifying
1: to expand (something, such as a statement) by the use of detail or illustration or by closer analysis
2a: to make larger or greater (as in amount, importance, or intensity) : INCREASE
b: to increase the strength or amount of especially : to make louder
c: to cause (a gene or DNA sequence) to undergo amplification
Comparing the two words, amplify and develop, let’s see how they look as part of a resume submission;
Came up with a better formula toward the development of a better sales strategy for the company’s marketing goals.
The amplification of a better sales strategy to meet the company’s marketing goals came about by improving on its formula.
Although both entries are good, using the term amplification sounds more advanced than development. When a potential employer is looking at someone’s resume, they’re looking for someone who shows signs of moving up and forward. Between the two entries, the second is more effective in that regard than the first one.
Cultivate “Cultivating a better crop harvest as a farming technician through proven seeding procedures that provide positive results.”
cul·ti·vate | \ ˈkəl-tə-ˌvāt \
1: to prepare or prepare and use for the raising of crops
Some fields are cultivated while others lie fallow.
also: to loosen or break up the soil about (growing plants)
2a: to foster the growth of
cultivate oysters for pearls
c: to improve by labour, care, or study: REFINE
cultivate the mind…
cultivated a reputation as a hard-core wheeler-dealer …— Kit Boss
cultivate the arts
4: to seek the society of: make friends with
looking for influential people to cultivate as friends
Between the words develop and cultivate used in a resume, which sounds better?
Developing a better crop harvest as a farming technician through a proven seeding procedure has seen positive results.
Cultivating a better crop harvest as a farming technician through proven seeding procedures that provide positive results.
Cultivating is more precise as a description. Developing is too generalized. Keep this in mind as you choose how you wish to word whatever you put on your resume. Do you want to be seen as someone bland by being too general with what you put down, or would you rather come across as someone who thinks and acts with better precision?
Elaborate “Whenever we’d submit business proposals for funding purposes, an elaborate step-by-step plan is laid out.”
elab·o·rate | \ i-ˈla-b(ə-)rət \
(Entry 1 of 2)
1: planned or carried out with great care
took elaborate precautions
2: marked by complexity, fullness of detail, or ornateness
elab·o·rate | \ i-ˈla-bə-ˌrāt \
(Entry 2 of 2)
1: to work out in detail: DEVELOP
elaborate a theory
2: to produce by labour
3: to build up (something, such as complex organic compounds) from simple ingredients
Now, as a resume entry, let’s see how elaborate compares with develop;
When submitting business proposals for funding purposes, we’d develop a step-by-step plan.
Whenever we’d submit business proposals for funding purposes, an elaborate step-by-step plan is laid out.
Again, what sounds better here? Elaborate is not a word used often, so it actually pops out more than develop. Something like this gets noticed, which is to your advantage when this particular word is used right.
Enlarge “Enlarged an understanding of how carburetors work while working as a small engine mechanic.”
en·large | \ in-ˈlärj , en- \
1: to make larger : EXTEND
enlarged the family fortune with new investments
2: to give greater scope to: EXPAND
education may enlarge one’s view of the world
3: to set free
enlarge a captive
Within a resume, which of the two words between expand and develop works best?
As a small engine mechanic, I developed a better understanding of how carburetors work.
Enlarged an understanding of how carburetors work while working as a small engine mechanic.
Enlarge is not a word commonly used within the English language. Because of this, choosing it over develop once again makes it a more dynamic choice when placed within a resume entry.
Evolve “While working at the lumber mill, the knowledge based evolved, going from an entry-level position to management.”
\ i-ˈvälv , -ˈvȯlv, ē- also -ˈväv or -ˈvȯv \
b: to produce by natural evolutionary processes
evolve social, political, and literary philosophies— L. W. Doob
Between evolve and develop, which resume entry sounds better to you?
From entry-level to management, developed better knowledge while working at the lumber mill.
While working at the lumber mill, the knowledge based evolved, going from an entry-level position to management.
There is just simply something special about using the word evolve. Compared to develop, it garners more attention whenever somebody happens to read it. In regards to the person in charge of hiring the best candidate for the job, there will typically be a preference of an evolving person as opposed to a developing one. Everyone can develop, but not everyone can evolve!
Expand “Employers can identify with the word expand as this is what they are aiming to do when looking for somebody new to join their company’s team.”
ex·pand | \ ik-ˈspand \
expanded; expanding; expands
1: to open up: UNFOLD
2: to increase the extent, number, volume, or scope of ENLARGE
3a: to express at length or in greater detail
b: to write out in full
expand all abbreviations
c: to subject to mathematical expansion
expand a function in a power series
Now, between expand and develop, here are two resume entry examples to look at;
As we developed as business partners, we opened up a second store, located on the other side of the city.
As business partners, expanded to a second store location at the other side of the city.
Employers can identify with the word expand as this is what they are aiming to do when looking for somebody new to join their company’s team. In truth, the word develop doesn’t make nearly as impressive a statement as expand does. Again, when looking to choose what words you’d like to use on your resume, try to look at it from an employer’s point of view. Because, in reality, that is exactly how your resume will be seen by them.

Form is a big word, yet it is so small in spelling. However, it goes much further as resume entries than the word develop does. Instead of just one set of examples how to favour form over develop as a resume entry, we have used two;
We developed a unique fashion line that turns ordinary scrub uniforms into something extraordinary.
A unique fashion line was formed, turning ordinary scrub uniforms into something extraordinary.
We developed solutions for customer service reps on how to handle stressful situations without losing their composure.
Formulated sound solutions for customer service representatives to handle the most stressful situations without losing their composure.
For such a small word, form has a certain feel of sophistication when it is used properly. And, on a resume, it stands out more than develop. Form sounds like a word with scientific purpose while develop sounds like an accident.
Grow “The growth of understanding the difference between clean and unclean urine samples has played a factor in the growing experience as a lab technician.”
\ ˈgrō \
grew\ ˈgrü \; grown\ ˈgrōn \; growing
1a: to cause to grow
b: to let grow on the body

Which sounds better? Develop or grow? Let’s find out with these resume examples;
Since my development as a lab technician, I have developed a better understanding of how to distinguish the difference between clean urine samples from unclean.
The growth of understanding the difference between clean and unclean urine samples has played a factor in the growing experience as a lab technician.
Employers relate to the word grow better than the word develop. Employers want their company to grow, which seems more evolutionary than to merely develop.
Mature “The overall experience level as a dog trainer has matured over time.”
ma·ture | \ mə-ˈchu̇r , -ˈchər also -ˈtu̇r , -ˈtyu̇r \
(Entry 1 of 2)
1: based on slow careful consideration
a mature judgment
2a(1): having completed natural growth and development: RIPE
(2): having undergone maturation

b: characteristic of or suitable to a mature individual

4: due for payment
a mature loan
5: belonging to the middle portion of a cycle of erosion
a mature stream
: to bring to maturity or completion
The word mature literally brings maturity to a resume entry than the word develop. Check out the two examples of how these two different words are used in a resume entry;
Over time, my experience level as a dog trainer has developed into what it is today.
The overall experience level as a dog trainer has matured over time.
Maturity shows growth, whereas development really doesn’t. Development is merely a transition from one thing to another. Maturity is going from the lack of something into one that is more abundant. Potential employers tend to seek out candidates who come across as mature, so seeing a word matching what they’re looking for will help in this regard.
Process “While among a team of legal advisors, processed a series of statements with convincing opening arguments.”
processed; processing; processes
b(1): to take out a summons against
(2): to serve a summons on

(3): to subject to examination or analysis

c: to work (hair) into a conk
Between develop and process, as a resume entry describing achievements, which sounds better?
As part of a team of legal advisers, developed a series of convincing arguments as opening statements.
While among a team of legal advisors, processed a series of statements with convincing opening arguments.
Everything has a process, including resumes. When potential employers go over each candidate, they literally will distinguish the difference between someone who uses the word process from someone who uses the word develop. Typically, employers are going to favour resumes coming from the candidate who chose to use process as their word of choice as opposed to the one who used develop.
It Really Is In The Wording
In the end, in order to have that genuine “look at me” resume that catches the eye of potential employers, one needs to step out of the box of the norm. Normal is good, but when it also comes across as boring, then this is where the need to step it up comes into play.
If you really want that dream job, then you need to give your potential employer that dream resume they’re looking for!
Another word for coworkers
Coworkers can be great people to know but they can also be a real pain to deal with. There are different names you can call your coworker; but don’t worry none of them are bad. The following material will describe the different words and phrases you can use to call your coworker. Let’s take a look at what they are called and how you should the words.
Another Word for Coworker : How to Find It
When you want to figure out different words to use coworker (or any other English word) use a thesaurus. A thesaurus is a magical English reference book or website that lists alternate words for single phrase. A thesaurus can be printed as a book, but most thesaurus lists are online on websites. You can simply type in the phrase thesaurus in a search engine and multiple thesaurus sites will show up.
You can also use a word processing program on your computer to find multiple words from a single phrase. Your word program also has a built-in thesaurus that will showcase different words. You can usually access the thesaurus program by clicking on the “Review” tab at the top part of your word processor program. Once you do this you can then click on the thesaurus tab and a list of words will usually appear. Don’t forget that books, online sites and word processors are the three primary places where you can find a thesaurus.
Another way that you can find another word for coworker
Another way that you can find another word for coworker is to ask an English teacher or a linguist. An English teacher would be thrilled to tell you multiple words for coworker. Why would most English teachers behave in this way? Their behavior would be motivated by the fact someone really cares about the different ways you can say a single word. Since most English teachers find the technical side of language to be thrilling; they simply want to tell others about their passion. Even if many other people don’t really care, they still want to share their knowledge in this area.
A linguist is a professional language speaker. Their job is to know different types of languages and different words within their language. These individuals make their living through processes such as translating, transcription and writing. They can also work as (English) teachers or professors within the United States. These individuals also travel around the world to help people to understand language. You can travel to your local university and find a linguist who can help you to further understand different words.
Another way you can find different words for coworker is to ask local employees and workers. These individuals will refer to their coworkers in different ways. If you decide to take this route, make sure you speak with people across from different professions. You should talk to white collar workers and to blue collar employees as well. Remember, each class of worker has their own terms, dialect and language that they use within the workplace.
For example, a professional or semi-professional football player will refer to other players as team members or being a part of their squad. However, you won’t hear a bunch of guys in a downtown office saying they are part of a squad. People in professional work environments generally don’t refer to each other in that type of way. Still, they might call themselves team members because many coworkers refer to themselves in this way.
Another way that you can find the meaning of coworker is by thinking about how people refer to each when they’re off work. Oftentimes, people will talk about the individuals they work with. They some time say things like: “I don’t like “those people” I work with” or “(‘the people’ at my are real cool)”. When you hear terms such as “those people” or the “the people” when referring to their job; they’re generally talking about their coworkers and/or bosses. Don’t forget that managers and bosses fall under the category of a coworker. However, these individuals have more authority than just a regular worker dude or girl.
Finally, you might even have your own terminology that you use for your coworkers. Words or phrases such as “worker buds”, “hard legs (a reference to male workers)”, “babes (reference to female workers)” are used very often by people when they are personally referring to coworkers. Remember that language is constantly changing. New terms will emerge for the word coworker and old terms will start to die off. Still, regardless of what you call a person that works besides you; they are still your coworker. Here is a list of words that are often used for coworker.
Colleague: The word colleague is a fancy term that people can use for coworker. Most people call their workers a colleague if they are employed in an upper level profession. Certain professions such as engineers, upper level management, business careers and medical professions tend to refer to each other as colleagues. Most guys that work at a grocery store, warehouse, factory or as a trash collector; refer to each other as coworkers.
Associates: The word associate is a very tricky word that can be used for coworker. The good thing about this word is that it can be used for lower level professions and for employees who have careers in high level careers. A person working in a restaurant typically calls their coworker an associate. A person working in a law firm sometimes refer to their fellow workers as associates. This simple term for coworker fits in within many work environments.
Collaborator: A collaborator is a different type of coworker. Very few people within most work environments do not call each other collaborators. Typically, people who work in the music industry or some type of media industry will collaborate with each other. This word is also sometimes used by people within the professional work world but usually they opt for words such as partnership instead. By the way, you will never hear the word collaboration used in regular places of employments. Most works do not collaborate with another on projects.
Partners: Partner is also used to describe a coworker. The word partner is often used by law firms, businesses and investment firms. Average workers will not use the term simply because they just do not refer to each other as “partners” for their type of work. Also, partner is used by businesses that collaborate with other businesses on projects, philanthropic endeavors or media campaigns.
Cohort: A cohort is another phrase for coworker. A cohort is an old word that is sometimes used in various professions. This word is often used in work in semi-formal work environments related to business or some type of education field.
Workmate: A workmate is coworker that usually lives in a British-English speaking country. Places such as the U.K., Ireland, Australia and Canada might often use this word to describe a person that works with them. A workmate is usually associated with regular job employees and for individuals who are employed in semi-professionals careers. The word and phrase work fellow or fellow worker are similar to workmate but is not often used as much.
Office Chum: An office chum is a British English term that is often used describe a fellow worker. Office buddy and office pal area also sometimes used to refer to professional and semi-professional office workers.
Work Buddy: A work buddy is similar to office chum. This word is often used by low level workers in America and in the British-English regions.
Sidekick: Most people don’t like to be called sidekicks when they are at work. However, this term is often used by some people within various fields of employment.
Assistant: An assistant is a popular phrase that is used by coworkers. However, this word is often used by people who have someone working beneath them. Sometimes, coworkers will refer to each other as assistants and this word is often used in lower level jobs such as restaurants, bars and retail outlets. Still, this term is reserved for management positions.
Acquaintance: An acquaintance is another popular word that people use at work. However, an acquaintance is less formal than coworker. This phrase is usually reserved for people who could be friends of a worker but not necessarily a good friend.
Crony: The word crony falls into the category of coworker. However, this work is often associated with people who are crooks, thieves and up to no good. Also, most people don’t call each other cronies. This word has gone out of favor many years ago. Still, some people in shady professions as cronies.
Comrade: Some people in the west refer to themselves as comrades but it doesn’t happen often. This word normally is used by people who live and work in Russia or Eastern European countries. Rarely will you hear Americans or British-English language speakers refer to each other as cronies.
Counterpart: A counterpart is another name for a coworker and this term is not used that often. When it is used in a work environment it is often utilized in a semi-informal and formal setting. Still, counterpart is not used often enough for it to be regularly used word within the work world.
These are primary words that are used to describe a coworker. As you can see many of these words are popular or commonly used depending on the type of job or career that a person is employed. They also are used according to the country or place where a person lives. Again, you can find these words in a thesaurus that describes what they are and their use.
