I want to highlight the aspect of socially integrating with a team as well as integrating with the team's work flow.

Personally I think that when using 'integrate' in regards to 'integrating with a team', it sounds more focused toward work flow than in a social aspect. The same of 'becoming one of the team'. Is this the case?

If so, any suggestions for phrases or expressions to use in a professional sense? For example, on a curriculum vitae.

  • So you're looking for a descriptive term to use in a CV?

adaptable, team-oriented, team-minded seem like proper word choices to describe someone who possesses the traits characterized in your question.

This how I'd rank them from best to worst fit:

  1. Team-oriented
  2. Team-minded
  3. Adaptable

They all work. However, as adaptable doesn't necessarily convey the social aspect I put it in third place. Team-oriented is more common than team-minded, at least in my experience.


I like the term assimilate, as it has a very cultural, ergo social, connotation.

  • Your post would be improved if it included a reference supporting your assertion. See how to answer.

  • That concept relates more to receiving party than the one coming in to join.
