Your resume must represent your abilities, strengths and experience and to give an accurate representation it must reflect your personality and personal characteristics.

To do this we recommend that you use words that accurately represent your daily duties and responsibilities.

To assist you in this we recommend that you use the following words as you detail your daily work schedule.

To convey a sense of energy and purpose we recommend using words such as:

Accomplished          Achieved          Arranged          Assisted

Coached   Conducted   Contributed   Coordinated   Created

Demonstrated    Designed    Developed    Devised    Directed
