Hiring managers see a lot of the same verbs over and over again. While including action words is a good place to start in crafting a compelling resumé, certain verbs are more specific and visual than others and help your resumé stand out.
Here are some words to help you along:
TO DEMONSTRATE CREATIVITY
Example: Established three new programmes that grew customer base by 20 per cent in five years.
TO DEMONSTRATE LEADERSHIP
Example: Led a team of 16 sales representatives and exceed quarterly sales goal by 131 per cent ($5.13m).
TO DETAIL MEASURABLE RESULTS
An example: Increased traffic to brick-and mortar location by 15 per cent over three years.
