Powerful Word Choice

No Comments on Powerful Word Choice

Choosing strong, powerful verbs is an important part of Project 5. Review Power Skills for Your Resume and Resume Bullet Formula (p. 37–40) in the 2014–2015 Career Planning Guide. These resources demonstrate the kinds of verbs you can use to show yourself as a strong, active person.

Notice in particular how the example in the bullet formula in the 2014–2015 Guide moves from a generic idea (“communication skills”) to a very strong statement about what the person has accomplished. That idea of highlighting your “Demonstrated Accomplishment/Contribution” is what you should work for in your report for Project 5. For instance, rather than saying you were a strong Discussion participant in your Project 5 report, choose a strong verb and add clarifying details the show your accomplishment or contribution.
