3 words that can harm your Resume by resume writer Odaine Govender

Avoid using cliche words on a resume, When ever I come across such words, immediately I start thinking too much “fluff”
What is “fluff?” Things one can’t prove.

1. Hardworking – we all see ourselves hardworking, but have you worked numerously overtime without being paid  to do so? State that rater than just saying, im hardworking. 

2. Organized – Great your organized, what have you organized? How has your organized skills benefited the organization.

3. Assisted – sometimes job seekers are too humble when it comes to listing their achievements. One way they do this is by using the word assisted when what they really mean is collaborated or contributed. Don’t sell yourself short.

Tip always quantify your answers.
