If you're hunting for a job, every word matters. But some words matter most of all: verbs. Verbs are the catalysts of sentences. They bring communication to life -- whether it's written or spoken. The right "power verbs" make resumes, cover letters, interview conversations and presentations more memorable, impactful, and dynamic. (Conversely, dull and uninteresting verbs can sink your chances to get hired, even if your potential employer has no idea why they don't like you!)

Now, in Power Verbs for Job Seekers, communications expert and business professor Dr. Michael Faulkner shows you exactly how to choose action-packed verbs that electrify your communications, and attract your audience to you like moths to a flame. Packed with hundreds of verbs and phrases, this concise, easy-to-use guide reveals why certain verbs are so much more powerful, and provides sample sentences showing you exactly how to use them.

Using Faulkner's verbs and real-world examples, you can supercharge resumes and cover letters, interview more successfully, and make a personal pitch no employer can resist. Simply put, there's no faster, easier way to separate yourself from the pack -- and get that job!
