Freebie of the Month - Resume Word List

March 5, 2017

Put down the thesaurus! I've got you covered with my expertly curated list of active and dynamic resume words. If you're stuck trying to find an option better than "improved" or "managed", bookmark this page now!

 

 

As a writer, I am intimately acquainted with blank-page anxiety.

 

Resume writing can be especially daunting because it’s so easy to fall into the habit of repeating yourself over and over (increased this, increased that; improved this, improved that) – dull, dull, dull.

 

That’s why I developed a “master list” of powerful marketing words. If I ever need a little push, these words help unleash my creative juices. And, I’m sharing my secret mojo-boosting list with you to help yank you out of even the deepest resume writing slump.
