How Do You Get Hired?

Since competition for the best jobs is fierce, you should craft your online profile or resume so it stands out. That means using words others do not.

Instead of describing who you are and what you have done in vague and meaningless language, illustrate your unique professional accomplishments and experiences. The best way to do this is through concrete examples that showcase your skills and achievements.

If you’re looking for a job and want to stand out from the crowd, don’t describe yourself as ‘effective’ or ‘motivated.’ But most of all, don’t say you’re ‘creative.’

Why? Everyone else uses those words.

The top 10 most overused resume buzz words:

  1. Creative
  2. Organizational
  3. Effective
  4. Extensive experience
  5. Track record
  6. Motivated
  7. Innovative
  8. Problem solving
  9. Communication skills
  10. Dynamic

Good luck on getting hired. And make sure not to lose your job after you get it!
