[Action Words]   [Self-Descriptive Words]   [Other Helpful Words]

Here are some great, free resume words you can use to make your resume powerful and dynamic.  The action words are to help you use what is called "active voice" versus "passive voice" in your resume.  As an example, saying "I was going" is passive and saying "I went" is active.
 

Listed below are three types of resume words in your resume writing.  Review the words in your current resume to see how you can enhance it.  We are continually building our list of words to use in a resume.  Let us know if you come up with other helpful, positive, and descriptive resume words.

Our Philosophy...
We exist to help you develop a better resume versus doing it for you (you don't learn anything that way).  You need to "own" your resume so you can feel empowered to improve it throughout your career.  We have free samples and examples, tips and advice and we will help you write the best, personalized resume possible.  That is our commitment to you!
