In French, one can use the verb valoriser while applying for a job, writing a motivation letter etc. when one wants to make use of some particular skills and be appreciated for using them. I have tried to google out its translation - http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=16845 and http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/french-english/valoriser - but it seems that the consensus has not been reached.
My current winner is add value by using my ... skills. What would your suggestions be?
