It is necessary to avoid weak and passive verbs when writing a curriculum vitae, stay away from business jargon or clichés, and watch for repetitive terms and sentences. The quality and relevance of the resume can be compromised by these poor word choices. Instead, use strong action verbs and stop the overuse of the same verbs (like “supported,” “oversaw,” and “used”).
Words of action are clear, explain your efforts and add a positive tone to your resume and accomplishments list. Here is an example from this:
Lacks in power and clarity: “Held weekly progress meetings to discuss information with clients.”
Empowered and detailed: “Weekly progress meetings organized to communicate revenue growth for the department.”
Can you see just how stronger and more informative the second alternative is? The action verbs make a direct and impactful contribution to you.
