Action verbs

Action verbs are dynamic verbs that show the performance of an action. 

A job-seeker should not write a CV / cover letter without action verbs describing their accomplishments.

As a job-seeker, you should not let your cover letter or resume leave your hands until you have described your accomplishments, skills and experiences using several action verbs in it.

Remember to use these action verbs when writing your resume and cover letter to convey a stronger message to your potential employer.
