Hello there again - today, as promised, we will discuss SUCCESS VERBS for your Perfect RN Resume this 2021.
(Examples and how to use them to your advantage)
Most of the sentences/bullets in your resume should start with a verb.
Instead of writing:
“Daily reports for management,” (which is the type of fragmented sentence you want to avoid in a resume), just add a verb: “Created daily reports for management.”
Preferably, you should use an action verb or a success verb, and try to avoid “responsible for” at all costs.
When you start with “responsible for,” it makes the task sound like a duty (something you had to do), rather than something you did proactively.
Your resume should portray you as someone who does things proactively, going above and beyond your normal duties and responsibilities. Ideally, your resume should sound more assertive than passive.
For example, rather than:
“Responsible for managing 7 employees to accomplish XYZ...,”
just drop “Responsible for” and start with the verb:
“Managed 7 employees to accomplish XYZ...” Doesn’t that sound much better? You can also swap out “managed” for a better action verb (mobilized, commanded, coordinated, directed, etc.).
Yes, you do have to list some “duties,” but using an action verb will make the bullets more interesting and more proactive.
Action verbs are great, and you’ve probably seen giant lists of them on the internet.
But to pack some real punch?
Use a success verb, which demonstrates a result, or success (listed below).
