10 Words To Leave Out Of Your Resume

It's easy enough to say that you are "hard working" or a "team player" in your resume. It's a little bit harder to actually give meaning to these words by proving it.

When writing your resume, it's important to include as many keywords as possible so that your document will make it past any filter systems the organization has in place. While these terms are important, there are other words that job seekers scatter throughout their resumes that have less meaning.

Proving to hiring managers that you are fit for the job is important, but you should do this by using brief, specific examples of your skills. That means you should leave out generic terms that don't speak enough to how you would help the organization. Below are 10 words that don't do enough to explain why you are the best fit for the organization:

  • Aggressive
  • Ambitious
  • Competent
  • Goal-oriented
  • Motivated
  • Creative
  • Self-starter
  • Independent
  • Meticulous
  • Professional
