      When it comes to creating and writing your resume, you will want to avoid writing from a first-party perspective.

      That means avoid using words like, “I led” or “I managed” or “I accomplished”.

      Rather, try to stick to words that are written from a third-party perspective.

      Below, you’ll find a full list of 550 positive action verbs to use on your resume.

      By using these action verbs, you’ll be able to fully, accurately, and thoroughly describe the projects you completed experiences you’ve had, and accomplishments you made.
