Ineffable (adj.): Incapable of being expressed; indescribable or unutterable
Having trouble communicating what you’re thinking? Have something important and urgent to say but it seems too ineffable for you to try? Maybe you want to show that you are a great candidate for the job in your cover letter but all you can think of are clichés. Try this:
Draw a word map with the job in the center and connect it to the skills that you have to get some ideas about how you would be the perfect employee.
Or have a conversation with a friend or family member about what you’re best qualities are.
Create a poem about you as a professional, and see what metaphors and similes pop out at you.
It might seem silly, but think outside the box. And it’s okay to call in the professionals. Many people have professional writers help them create their resumes and cover letters to ensure they are putting their best foot forward. When you need that professional touch, let us help you develop your idea.
