When trying to describe an experience or skill, look at this list and find the word that best fits the situation. You’ll notice the list is broken down by field/skill area. This is only to make finding words easier. Employers like action words for a number of reasons; the biggest is because it makes their work much easier.
Most importantly, look at the job description for the job you are applying for. What skills are they looking for? What words do they use to describe those skills? You should use as many of the same words in describing yourself as possible, while staying honest, of course.
