The inclusion of the verb 'juggle' on a resume shows that an applicant has the ability to be flexible and adaptable. It also shows that they can juggle multiple tasks without sacrificing quality or efficiency. Employers look for this trait in applicants because it shows they can successfully manage unexpected changes.

While it may be accurate that the verb 'juggle' means that you can deal with several tasks at once, keep track of all of them, and prioritize them effectively, this word is a weak verb; it doesn't indicate how skilled or experienced you are with juggling. When writing past accomplishments, it's also acceptable to use verbs in their past tense unless it's a current role.

A better way to communicate that you're someone who can juggle multiple responsibilities is to use power verbs like 'prioritized' or 'managed.' This will provide the recruiter insight into how well you can handle a large workload and prioritize tasks to get things done efficiently.

Power verbs help you present yourself as capable and driven—someone who can succeed when given a challenge or task. They also help you demonstrate that you have substantial experience because they are more specific than general terms like 'juggle.'

I've compiled some synonyms you can use instead of Juggle on your resume, followed by real examples I've written for clients (feel free to use them!).
