While many other words are misused or diluted by overuse, these are the weakest and most abused,” says Barrett-Poindexter. “If your résumé language or content is weak, unfocused and/or rambling, you can obliterate your chances of landing that dream role.

According to a CareerBuilder survey, on average, a whopping 17 percent of hiring managers spend only 30 seconds or less reviewing résumés. Additionally, about 68 percent spend less than two minutes reviewing a résumé. Given this information, it is crucial that every word you include in your summary of work is of value.

Your resume needs to communicate the value you can add to a company and show your unique qualifications for the positions to which you apply. In order to stand out from the crowd, you don’t want to use the same kind of hyperbolic language that 50 other candidates have adopted in a vain attempt to rise above the competition. If the words you choose in your resume weakly represent your individual talents and work experiences, take them out!Using action words in your resume is an effective strategy for highlighting accomplishments as well as for making you a stronger candidate. However, many job seekers tend to overuse certain words so that they become meaningless. Take a moment to review your own resume for any of these words:1) Innovative2) Hard working3) Results-driven4) Good communication skills5) Effective6) Exceptional7) Highly motivated8) Outstanding

A resume is your calling card. Your first impression. Your bait to reel in the big fish. Unfortunately, instead of live bait, far too many job seekers are fishing for new jobs with nothing more than a lifeless, rotting worm.Do you know how many resumes hiring managers read when there’s a job opening? It’s routinely in the hundreds, and sometimes can rise even higher. So when you’re sorting through that many resumes (and only spending six or seven seconds on each one, I might add), things get pretty repetitious. The same buzzwords pop up over and over and over again, to the point they lose all meaning and eyes glaze over when stumbling across them.What happened to standing out? Being unique? Making your mark? Those are all things employers look for when choosing candidates, but you’re never going to accomplish that goal if you’re over-using these tired words and phrases.
