CV Verbs


CV verbs

The verbs you use on your CV are vitally important.

The verbs you use will help the employer to appreciate
the value that you can offer the organisation. Your verbs need
to be strong and powerful and add weight to your descriptions.

A common verb that appears on CVs is the word
"assisted". Job-hunters hope that if they mentioned
that they assisted on a major project or with a major negotiation,
then this will impress prospective employers. However, the word
assisted doesn’t demonstrate what the person actually did.

Try using active verbs throughout your CV and
promote the benefits that you offer an employer. If you need examples
