Ask Adrienne: What are some strong executive resume action words?
Career Impressions Blog
by Adrienne Tom
4M ago
Some executive job seekers want to know two things about resume words: “Why does my executive resume need action words?” and “what executive resume action words should I consider for my executive resume?”.  Both are important questions. To answer the first question, consider if you were reading a story with only one primary action: “The girl smiled at the boy. The boy smiled at the girl.  Everyone smiled at each other. People were all smiling”.  Lack of action diversity wouldn’t hold your attention for long. Nor would it create a lot of confidence in the author. Your executive ..read more

Build a Connection with Your LinkedIn About Section

I don’t know about you, but I prefer to feel like a person is speaking to me when I read their LinkedIn About section; I want to feel their personality in the text. This type of connection seems to occur best when the content is written in the first person. Some LinkedIn About sections come off a bit stuffy and snoozy when written in third-person. I’ve read several third-person About sections from senior-level professionals and executives lately. Each felt a bit removed and slightly old-fashioned — which isn’t a great look for a leader.   Writing about yourself in first-person is just on ..read more
