    10 Boilerplate Phrases That Kill Resumes
    by: Liz Ryan



    The 2009 job market is very different from job markets of the past. If you haven't job-hunted in a while, the changes in the landscape can throw you for a loop.

    One of the biggest changes is the shift in what constitutes a strong resume. Years ago, we could dig into the Resume Boilerplate grab-bag and pull out a phrase to fill out a sentence or bullet point on our resume. Everybody used the same boilerplate phrases, so we knew we couldn't go wrong choosing one of them -- or many -- to throw into your resume.

    Things have changed. Stodgy boilerplate phrases in your resume today mark you as uncreative and "vocabulary challenged." You can make your resume more compelling and human-sounding by rooting out and replacing the boring corporate-speak phrases that litter it, and replacing them with human language -- things that people like you or I would actually say.

    Here are the worst 10 boilerplate phrases -- the ones to seek out and destroy in your resume as soon as possible:

    * Results-oriented professional
    * Cross-functional teams
    * More than [x] years of progressively responsible experience
    * Superior (or excellent) communication skills
    * Strong work ethic
    * Met or exceeded expectations
    * Proven track record of success
    * Works well with all levels of staff
    * Team player
    * Bottom-line orientation

    You can do better. What about adding a human voice to your resume? Here's an example:

    "I'm a Marketing Researcher who's driven by curiosity about why people buy what they do. At XYZ Industries, I used consumer surveys and online-forum analysis to uncover the reasons why consumers chose our competitors over us; our sales grew twenty percent over the next six months as a result. I'm equally at home on sales calls or analyzing data in seclusion, and up to speed on traditional and new-millennium research tools and approaches. I'm fanatical about understanding our marketplace better every day, week and month -- and have helped my employers' brands grow dramatically as a result."

    You don't have to write resumes that sound like robots wrote them. A human-voiced resume is the new black -- try it!

    thanks doctor for missing me-
    I was on a 45 days long trip to Sudan where life is little bit complicated - the only time you get for yourself is when you're sleep.
