Exercise # 1--  Review Your Resume

Make a list of all the positions you have held, both business and non-business.

For each position, list the things you liked about it and why.
For each position, list the things you didn’t like about it and why.

Once your lists are completed, review them, highlighting all action verbs / phrases.
Make a list of the four or five action verbs / phrases that are highlighted the most.
This will give you a sense of:

The kinds of actions or work you like to do.
The kinds of actions or work you don’t like to do.

This is critical, valuable knowledge that will help you find a new job that is right for you!
