The phrase is a bit of a cliché so I'm looking for something that doesn't sound so obvious.
I have done xyz, which I believe will stand me in good stead for this job.
Can you provide another phrase meaning the same thing?
"qualify" is current usage and seems to fit.
"I have done xyz, which I believe will qualify me for this job.
- qualify - "to provide or be provided with the abilities or attributes necessary for a task, office, duty, etc."
In this context "stand" and "stead" means different things serving different purposes for the subject.
Stand means place or put or portray. It's an action here.
Stead means advantage (place). It's a noun here
