What is an Adverb?

An adverb adds to a verb; an adverb describes, modifies or provides more information about a verb used in a sentence. Adverbs are often important to indicate the time, manner, place, degree or frequency of something.

In short, adverbs denote how?, in what way?, when?, where?, and to what extent?

Adverbs for Writing CVs and Resumes – Why Use Adverbs?

In terms of CV writing, including an adverb alongside an action verb within a bullet point statement can really help to substantiate and qualify what you have to convey to the reader.

For example…

  • Visiting accident scenes to garner vital evidence, take measurements and digital images, make local enquiries to identify potential witnesses and locate any CCTV footage to support liability stance.

This bullet point statement tells us that the candidate visits accident scenes but gives us no indication of how?, in what way?, when?, where?, and to what extent? By making a small change to the sentence and including an adverb, we can address one element of the above.

For example…

  • Rapidly visiting accident scenes to garner vital evidence, take measurements and digital images, make local enquiries to identify potential witnesses and locate any CCTV footage to support liability stance.

By including the adverb ‘rapidly’ the reader now knows the candidate has to get to the accident scene as quickly as possible to ensure vital evidence is not lost and the investigation can be thoroughly conducted.
