Active words are normally positive verbs that clearly and forcefully communicate your contribution to the job. They include words such as sold, delivered, implemented, improved and
negotiated. The list of action words is enormous. A list of action verbs and how to use them in a CV is detailed in Sarah Berry’s CV bookWrite a Perfect CV in a Weekend‘.

achievements and a CV that only lists their duties. A duty is what you are expected to perform in a role. An achievement is the value that you delivered in the role.

Whether or not you choose to include a CV personal statement or not, you still need to promote your key achievements within your CV under each role that you have performed to date.

Within your CV, outline what you have achieved in a succinct and concise way. The easiest way to do this, and the one that we have adopted as part of our CV creator
