  • All suggestions below are good replacements for 'fit in'. However, I think you're over-thinking it and still prefer 'fit in'. But I would re-write the sentence as "I believe I'm a good fit for your organization". That sounds much more natural than replacing fit with any of the suggestions. – public wireless Apr 2 '15 at 15:38

Jibe: to be in harmony or accord; agree.

Or any of these synonyms: http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/jibe


Assimilate - To become or allow something to become a part of a country or community rather than remaining in separate groups. Eg. New arrivals find it hard to assimilate.


I'll offer a couple of suggestions that would work well in the context you gave (all definitions chosen for the appropriate context from dictionary.com):


to match, coordinate, or interlock: The two versions of the story don't mesh.


  1. to bring together or incorporate (parts) into a whole.

  2. to make up, combine, or complete to produce a whole or a larger unit, as parts do.

  3. to unite or combine.


to establish a social or sympathetic relationship with a person or thing: two sisters unable to relate to each other.

Integrate would probably be my chosen verb for describing the ability to work well with co-workers in order to complete a project in a professional setting. When talking about how well people relate to one another, I believe it invokes a more personal connotation.


Conform - "behave according to socially acceptable conventions or standards". See https://www.google.com/search?q=conform ; "fit in" is listed as a synonym
