Words To Be Avoided in Your Resume

Effective selection of words is what makes you and your resume stands apart from others. If you chose effective words, not action verbs or glittery modifiers, these words also help you to make first impression. Here is rundown of words that you should avoid in your resume.

Assist, Assisted

Reason to Avoid: They actually want to know what you have achieved not, what you have done in other’s success story.

Experiment, Experimented

Reason to Avoid: People who may interviewing you in future actually want to know what you accomplished not what you have tried out in the past.

Skillfully, Effectively, Master, Expert, Carefully

Reason to Avoid: Hiring managers actually object these words that describe how well you have accomplished the task. They are pretty boastful about these explanatory words as if you are not that much good at your word, so why you are putting in resume.

Cutting Edge, Detail Oriented, Coordinate, Facilitate, Transform, Proven ability, Synergy and Liaison

Reason to Avoid: Hiring managers actually points out these words as these words take up extra spaces without communicating much. Hiring managers used to say, these words lose out their actual energy or aura. Hence it is better to lose out these words.
