Avoid Overused Phrases in Your Resume

By July 1, 2015Resume Co-Pilot

The summary of your resume is the best place to showcase your best attributes and accomplishments. But there are a few overused phrases that you should avoid saying to ensure recruiters are impressed by you.

Don’t say you’re an “out-of-the-box thinker.” Too many people use this phrase without giving examples to back it up. Use the space for actual accomplishments that showcase your skills rather than giving an abstract idea.

Don’t call yourself a leader. You can’t exactly claim leadership skills without proving them. Instead point out instances or times where you’ve led others.
