Action verbs

What are action verbs?

Action verbs are specific, descriptive words you use to tell your employer about your skill, achievement, and accomplishments. Action words will help your application, resume and interview stand out. Use words that express physical or mental action on your resume or cover letter. Avoid the use of non-descriptive verbs, rather make use of descriptive verbs like; adopted, advised, budgeted, collaborated, decreased, engineered, equipped, increased, monitored, motivated, widened, won, wrote etc.
