Any thoughts on an alternate phrase for "exciting opportunity"? It's such an overused phrase. Thank you!

Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


Depending on the context, one of these should fit:

  1. once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
  2. big break
  3. chance of a lifetime

break: an opportunity that helps you to be successful (Macmillan English Dictionary)


How about "dull job that doesn't pay very well, provide health benefits, or paid vacation"?

That description is not overused.

  • Ha! Yes - a common use for the phrase when covering up details in job descriptions. I, however,am just wondering from an editing standpoint. Many of the docs I have to edit about technology use that phrase. – PLong Nov 9 '15 at 19:44
  • Does it involve an investment opportunity? – TRomano Nov 9 '15 at 20:03
  • No. Just advancements in the travel technology space offering "exciting opportunities" to property managers of vacation rentals. I know - super sexy topic. – PLong Nov 9 '15 at 20:30
  • I'd succinctly describe a core feature and let those who would be excited by it get excited. Travel to anywhere and to anytime in the known Universe (some restrictions may apply). – TRomano Nov 9 '15 at 21:57
