Resume-killing words

Tags : 

I recently updated my resume. I’m not looking for a new job or anything like that, but the missing last 9 months of my career experience was starting to bother me.

So I happened to notice this CNN story on words that kill your resume. Apparently the top 5 nonsense words are:

Aggressive
Ambitious
Competent
Creative
Detail-oriented

What a shock – they’ve been so over-used that they’re virtually meaningless to hiring managers.
