The Power of Words grab your employer’s attention on your CV

The Power of Words


When you apply for a job, you have to be completely aware of the fact that you are not the only one sending in your CV. Employers receive hundreds of CV applications, and the mere thought of having to go through them every day is just tiring on its own; therefore, employers tend to skim through the CVs quickly. Due to that reason, your CV has to grab the attention of the employer in only one look. To calm your anxiety, there is a way in which you can do that!

 

Words are a powerful tool in our world, and using them in the right way could make them a weapon in our possession! Using the correct words on your CV is a way in which you can make sure that the employer would look at your CV, his eyes will be caught up by your choice of words; instead of taking only one second to look through it, the employer would actually read it through and you have therefore got yourself one step closer to reaching your dream job.

 

 Here are a couple of those words you can put on your CV when talking about your capabilities and what you can offer the company!

 

  1. On-time
    Punctuality is a problem a lot of people face because in a way, people tend to always think they have more time, but in fact time flies by quickly yet, in one minute, many things can happen. Therefore, stating that you are a punctual person is a very positive thing in many different aspects. Be careful, do not use this word if it is not true, you will be held accountable for the inaccuracy that may result.

     
  2. Supervised
    When one supervises an event or task that is being done, it shows how responsible that person can be, and how well organized he/she is. Plus, it shows that you can hold responsibility for major things that can affect the entire company. Supervising someone is not an easy task, yet a very important one! Use this word wisely and show it in your work!

     
  3. Participated
    When one participates in different sort of events related to the previous company worked at, and outside events for a bigger cause, it shows a great deal of interest in things that are not just work related. It shows that you do not only work in a company or are a part of the neighbourhood, but that you want to be involved and an asset in them. Show your potential employer that you would not only be a worker in the company, but would be friendly and form relationships with the fellow co-workers.

 

Writing a CV is not an easy task to do, but it can be mastered! The most important thing to note is that when you are forming your CV, make sure that you give it all your time to perfect it!
