Action words used in a resume are verbs that powerfully describe your qualifications. Here are examples of good action verbs in a resume work experience section:
- Collaborate with software developers to launch a new company website
- Optimized 50+ existing web pages, boosting organic traffic by 20%
- Analyze website data and brainstorm solutions for underperforming metrics
Using a strong verb like “collaborate” instead of a weak description like “work with” makes your accomplishments seem more impressive to the hiring manager.
If you’re unsure which words to use, note the verbs in the job description. Use those in your resume to show employers you’re qualified for the job.
