10 Essential CV Writing Verbs

10 Essential CV Writing Verbs

When writing your CV, the content is obviously very important, but fewer things are more important than the verbs you choose to include. Verbs are words that are used to describe actions, so it’s crucial that you include powerful verbs that accurately describe your actions in the workplace and demonstrate the impact they have on employers. This infographic shows the 10 most effective CV writing verbs, so try to use as many as you can when writing your own CV if you want to clearly explain your value to employers.

Some important verbs include:

Managed

Management skills are crucial in the workplace but are not just limited to people management. They also include time management, process management and stakeholder management. So to include the term managed in your CV, shows recruiters that you have control over your responsibilities and are able to drive the results that your employer needs.

Improved

Businesses are always looking to make improvements, so if you can drive positive change within an organisation then include it on your CV. If you’re an employee who can be brought on board to drive positive change within an organisation, you will be invaluable to an employer.

Reduced

Reduction is often perceived as a negative term, but there are plenty of positive ways to implement reductions in a business. Reducing company spending or resource use in particular is hugely beneficial to an employer. So if you have been involved in any cost or time saving activities, then get them in to your CV.

Negotiated

Negotiation is often considered a sales tool but it can also be used to gain better deals from suppliers and greater budgets for projects etc.

Planned

Planning is the backbone of success, so it’s vital to show employers that you are capable of methodical and effective planning. Your CV should contain solid examples of how you have created work plans and directed them through to completion in order to achieve your employers’ goals.

Supported

Most business exist to solve problems and help others, so being capable of support is hugely valuable. Whether you support your clients, line manager or team members – ensure that your CV shows how your actions benefit those who you interact with.

Influenced

From influencing potential customers to believe in a new product, to influencing senior staff to provide resources for a key project – the power of influence is always in high demand. If you have been able to use your influence to the benefit of previous employers, then detail it in your CV.

Trained

The ability to train others is appreciated by employers for two reasons. Firstly it shows that you have plenty of expertise in your field along with the gravitas and communication skills to deliver training sessions. Secondly, staff are a business’s most valuable asset, so anybody who can be relied upon to further strengthen a team will always be of benefit.

Resolved

Businesses face problems every day that need to be resolved. So it stands to reason that if you can prove your ability to resolve issues, you will impress recruiters with your CV. So whether you are resolving client complaints or internal work process problems, use your CV to explain how you can identify and resolve issues to ensure the smooth running of your employers’ business.

Presented

Public speaking of any kind can be a daunting task but it’s a hugely valuable skill for any employee to have. From presenting findings of research to an internal stakeholder, to presenting a new product to a crowd of potential customers; presentation is necessary across most businesses. If you’ve got any presentation experience at all, ensure that you include it in your CV if you want to make an impression.
