3. Responsible

2. Analytical

1. Problem Solving

First of all, I'm a little upset that synergy isn't on this list. I guess it's not really a “resume” word but we've got a guy in our office that is a habitual claimer of synergies. I'm sure there is a line on his resume, somewhere, that says, “Responsible for identifying synergies between BroBible and other organizations.” EVERYTHING CANNOT BE SYNERGISTIC, YOU ASSHOLE! Secondly, for 2013, I would like for all of you “job-seekers” to do everything in your power to make sure “cross-pollination” finds it's way into your resume and onto this list. I recently received a buzzword heavy email from someone and I felt the need to troll him so I broke it out in my response. Had to have blown his fuckin' mind when he saw it:

Hi Jeff,

Great to meet you virtually as well. I took a look at your product, I can see the obvious synergies you were referencing in your email and, after much consideration, I definitely think there are ways to cross-pollinate. Let's tee up a call for tomorrow. 

Regards, 

Jason
