Avoid Descriptive Adjectives on Your Resume

Avoid the temptation to add a lot of descriptive adjectives to your resume. These come off as fluff words, they don’t describe your actual skill set, and you can’t “prove” them on a resume. Words like hard working, loyal, dynamic personality, dedicated, should always be omitted from a resume. For example, who is going to put on their resume that they are lazy and uncommitted?


Instead, you want words that showcase your skills such as action verbs that truly showcase your skillset.


Some keywords that are more tangible and provable could include: Developing standard operating procedures, program management, managing direct reports, hiring, interviewing, training, building sales pipeline, cold calling, overseeing complex technical implementations, etc.


Finding a new job and trying to build your own resume can be scary.


Wouldn’t it feel amazing to have a high level of confidence in your resume, your LinkedIn profile, and your ability to maximize a job search?


The good news is that you don’t have to do this alone.
