I want to use this sentence on my cv, but I don`t know which adjective I should use.

I have very a large/big/lot of motivation.

  • I'd advise against using very a <adj.>. How about Extraordinarily Motivated? (Sorry, just kidding.) I think you could say I'm highly/strongly motivated (, enthusiastic, and committed to delivering quality work, etc). – Damkerng T. Sep 5 '15 at 16:24

This is not an answer to your question, sorry. But I can't let you fall into that pit.

I strongly advice against putting such rubbish in your CV. The reason it's rubbish is simple: it's a code word for "desperate". And you really don't want to let anybody know before they see you that you're desperate for that job/position/occupation/career. Your CV should be attractive, yet dignified.

Try to imagine yourself the hiring manager. Would you actually consider talking to a desperate candidate? Do you really need a desperate member on your team?

There is plenty of online sources that will (for free) tell you how to create a decent CV, what to say, how to say it, et cetera. Use them.

Good luck in your search!

  • What about if I use it not in CV but in cover letter? – Edgaras Karka Sep 5 '15 at 18:05
  • Same difference. The online sources that can help you write your CV, can also help you write your cover letter[s]. – Victor Bazarov Sep 5 '15 at 18:57
