When applying to undergraduate or graduate programs, people often need to create a resume or a CV. Besides the struggle of gathering all of the things you’ve done for the past few years and remembering your exact job title, learning the language of a resume or CV is just as hard!

Whether you are writing a high school resume or a lengthy CV for a PhD program, finding specific and active language is always a good bet.
