140 Power Verbs To Electrify Your Resume

Today, four year back in 2007, I established this Investment Banking Resume Blog.  Here’s what I wrote in my inaugural page:

”The goal of this blog is to introduce resume writing skills for investment banking jobs.

The mission of this blog is to help undergraduates and young bankers to build a successful investment banking career.

I enjoy the interactions with young people in these years.  I do hope your finding the information in this blog useful.  Marching into the fifth year, I have a little something for you.
  1. A list of 140 Power Verbs to Electrify Your Resume – this does not only work well for investment banking resumes.  Feel free to forward to your loved ones in case they need to write a resume.  (By courtesy of DreamResume.com)
  2. The 10% discount from DreamResume.com is still valid.  I’m glad that their ex-ibankers are willing to help my young readers to write their finance resumes at a discounted rate.  For more information, read this post.  Make sure to mention the discount code if you are placing an order over the phone. 
  3. A FREE ebook – The Top 10 Secrets of The World’s Greatest Cover Letter – Attract Job Interviews Like A Magnet.  This is newly written by world famous career guru Jimmy Sweeney and I’m proud that he has given permission for my readers to download it for free.  See the download link on the sidebar of this blog. 
Finally I’ve decided to set up a new blog focusing on Resume Cover Letters only.  This will provide valuable information to job seekers of all industries and all job levels.  It’s going to be great news too as I’ve gained permission from my friend Jimmy Sweeney to publish some of his best articles there.  Jimmy is the President of CareerJimmy and Author of The Amazing Cover Letters. I’m sure you’ll be able to write excellent cover letters from reading his articles.  I’ll make a separate announcement when this new blog is up.
