20 Powerful Words To Use In Your CV/Resume/Cover letter

I have been on both sides of the recruiting world, I have been hired and I have been in charge of hiring staffs for certain events. One of the things I have come to learn about the HR world is that EMPLOYERS WILL TAKE TIME TO READ YOUR RESUME. If you are apply to a professional career, keep in mind that employers are not looking just for a fresh face, or a number to their team, they typically seek for capable individuals who stands out among the multitude of applicants.

You increase your chances of being hired by sending out relevant, tailored resumes specifically to jobs that you are qualified for and would actually like to do. You don’t need to meet 100% of the requirements that job postings ask for, employers have been known to inflate the credentials required for positions to a ‘wish-list’.

If you are submitting a resume to highlight your qualifications for a job, and that resume is riddled with typos or grammatical errors, what does that say about your work ethic or attention to detail? Don’t make employers have to work hard to find what they’re looking for.

So, here are some key words to include in your curriculum vitae and or resume to help you stand out from the crowd of applicants and get that job you want!

  • SOLVED
  • PROMOTED
  • OVERSAW
  • IMPROVED
  • ADAPTED
