Whether you’re polishing your resume because you’ve been laid off or you just like to be prepared, weblog Squawkfox suggests six words you should banish from your curriculum vitae. Photo by SOCIALisBETTER.

The six words or phrases described in the post include:

  • Responsible for
  • Experienced
  • Excellent written communication skills
  • Team player
  • Detail oriented
  • Successful

According to the author, these common phrases are problematic because they gloss over what should be an opportunity to demonstrate something specific that you’ve done. Sure a hiring manager wants you to have experience, but she’d rather know the details. For example:

BAD

  • Responsible for writing user guides on deadline.

GOOD

  • Wrote six user guides for 15,000 users two weeks before deadline.

Head to the post for more details on how you can spin your resume no-no into a strong addition. If you’re resume-reading employer or just an expert at constructing a great CV, let’s hear your biggest resume pet peeves in the comments.
