3 Little Resume Words That Can Score You The Job

Want to boost your chances of scoring an interview? Use these three words on your resume… a lot.

Whether you’re a hiring manager searching for the best and the brightest, or someone seeking a job, there is something that separates the best applications from the pile. The words; from, to and by.

According to the job resource site, Inc.com, resumes filled with those three words are more promising than those that aren’t. That’s because it’s almost impossible to write a fluffy resume that looks good but doesn’t provide any actual information if you’re using those words.

“From,” “by” and “to” help you spell out results you were able to achieve and how you made your company better. In fact, they are so highly regarded in a job resume, major companies such as Google and Amazon have programs that seek them out while looking for applicants.

Both companies say these words help them decode someone’s accomplishments and separate what’s real from flowery adjectives. So, keep it simple, stick to the basics and let three simple words do the talking for you.
