#1.) “Highly qualified”- Instead, you should list specific qualifications.
#2.) “Hard worker”- Show how meeting deadlines and handling a large volume of tasks proves you work hard, instead of just saying it.
#3.) “Team player”- Give examples of how you worked well with other people.
#4.) “Problem solver”- Highlight a problem you were able to solve.
#5.) “Flexible”- Mention a major change you responded to at your job.
#6.) “People person”- You should give a specific example instead of just saying it.
