180 verbs that will help you create your list of skills

When creating an inventory of skills or skills, resume writing, analyze a job, answer interview question … you must use the appropriate, descriptive and varied verbs, those denoting action, leadership, achievements.

Many candidates are guilty of lack of vocabulary, using excess verbs like “make” or “use”. Even some forget the importance of these verbs when persudadir the reader, to convince him that you are the ideal candidate for the job. It is not the same as reading a resume in which the same verbs are repeated in all sections of jobs that specify which manages, through words, these achievements and, in that way, we imagine their potential. That is, imagine a curriculum in which it is read, “I did this for 18 months”, “x functions did for 3 months”, etc. By contrast, contrast that generality of verbs with descriptions like, “administr√© an advertising campaign which generated 200,000 visits to our website” or “configured the network management system ….” But to alter these verbs, the candidate not only communicates a greater communicative ability, but also increases the significance of their achievements.

I hope you have served this list of verbs, even to streamline the creation of your documents. Often when we started writing our letter or resume, we were stuck with the same words, which seem to repeat ad nauseam. Only when someone shows us something different, we began to realize that there are other possibilities.

Good luck in your job search. Remember that the best way to check if any changes really works is checking it for yourself, comparing resulting after changes. What we must never think is to keep doing the same thing and expect a different result (Einstein).
