Positive Words


Visitors: 485

When writing a resume never forget the power of your words. I have time and time again seen where job seekers have written things like work requirements. An employer is not looking for work requirements. This informs them that you were required to do it, and may not have wanted to. How about something more positive such as on the job acomplishments. This not only conveys what you did at the job, but what you actually accomplished.

Titles are also very powerfull. Using titles to your advantage could possibly put you on the top of the list. Work history, should be replaced with somthing more creative such as Performance history. With this word you actually performed which indeed is a very powerful word. Remember that not only do the employers read these titles the ones that stick out will be most memorable.

Using positive words when explaining tasks is also helpful. Use words that exute creativity like designed, created, refreshed. You should also use words that tells the employer that your a team player. Encouraged, together, group are some examples.

By emphasizing these types of words your resume is sure to stick out, and your a lot more likely to get the call.
