7 Resume Mistakes Everyone Makes

According to a survey of hiring managers, there are seven phrases you should avoid putting on your resume, because they’re overused and meaningless.

The survey was conducted by Office Team and posted on PR Newswire.  Here are the 7 phrases, along with the ways to correct your resume mistakes:

#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.

#7.) “Self-starter”- Show how you took action, without being prompted.
