Action Words

Question: Should I use action words on my resume?


Many people believe that action verbs are an essential part of any resume. After all, these words help to highlight your accomplishments and paint a picture of you as a competent employee.

However, there is also a risk of overusing these words and making your resume sound stiff or contrived. Ultimately, whether or not to use action verbs in your resume is a matter of personal preference. If you feel that they will help you to stand out from the crowd, then by all means, include them.

If you prefer a more straightforward approach, there is nothing wrong with using simple, direct language. The most important thing is to ensure that your resume accurately reflects your skills and experiences.
