August 18, 2006, Newsletter Issue #29: Use action words in your Overview section of your resume

Tip of the Week

The Overview or Summary section of your resume should be a bulleted section which
briefly outlines your skills. Start each line with an action word, like this:

Designed an exciting website for a production company
Organized a team of sales professionals
Created a new advertising concept for a start up company which required
an expert consultant
Sold over One Million Dollars in computers for an online business

As you can see, these types of action words get the attention of the reader
and emphasize your accomplishments.
