Begin each statement or phrase with a power verb, then take you resume to the next level, by inserting action-packed power verbs into your work history and branding statement.
Tip: Remember to use present tense verbs in your profile and qualifications summary and when creating task, responsibility and accomplishment bullets for a current position. Use past-tense verbs to describe prior positions and experience in your work history. There are literally thousands of verbs to choose from, so feel free to share your favorites.
