Add Some Oomph to Your Resume With These Words

Career Advice

You have one goal during the job search process: stand out from the rest. How do you do that? It starts with your resume. It’s probably currently filled with the same cliche phrases that fill everyone else’s profile like “team player,” “hard worker,” and “detail-oriented.”

If tired wording like “problem solver” or “results oriented,” appear on your resume, try to sub them out and rephrase them with something more creative. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • redesigned
  • negotiated
  • launched
  • modernized
  • orchestrated
  • spearheaded
  • influenced
  • committed
  • propelled
  • shaped
  • advocated
  • invested
  • reduced
  • improved
  • achieved
