You might think you have an awesome resume, but I bet it's missing some very important pieces—like powerful action words. A resume that's chock-full of phrases like responsible for, participated in, or contributed to isn't the worst thing on earth, but it doesn't say what you actually did in your job. So take that same resume from okay to great by replacing those simple, boring phrases with some punch-packing, meaningful verbs to describe your skills and accomplishments. And because there are 50 of those action words right in this very post, you no longer have an excuse for submitting a dull resume!
Oh, and if you're not sure what a word means, don't use it! Your resume is supposed to represent you, not a version of you who uses bigger words.
