Cover Letter Writing
Describe your experiences in phrases that start with a past-tense action word. Bullet each item. Bullets and descriptive verbs in the past tense produce statements that are more vivid and illustrative. These verbs are particularly effective:
- directed, managed, supervised,
- delivered, achieved, increased, generated,
instituted, devised, designed, formulated;
- decreased, reduced, cut, resolved;
- created, developed, established, performed,
pioneered, planned, produced, transformed, introduced and saved.
Avoid using the same words over and over again. Try writing different words that say the same thing in an alternative way.
