Ten new phrases for your resume

Last week LinkedIn announced the ten most overused words on resumes. Words that you use in your LinkedIn profile are likely to appear on resumes, which means the list outlines the buzzwords you should be avoiding when formatting and writing your own resume. There is sometimes a lack of creativity in being creative when doing your resume and profile. With that in mind here are the ten words and using football as a reference, words and phrases to replace them with. Creative............................Playmaker Organizational...................Good clock management Effective...........................Great inside the red zone Motivated.........................Touchdown maker Extensive experience.........Pro bowler Track Record...................Hall of fame career Innovative.........................Game changer Responsible......................Low turnover rate Analytical..........................Audibles at line of scrimmage Problem solving.................Runs a two minute drill well Of course a lot of words need to be relevant to the position you are seeking. Sometimes you must be creative in showing creativity.
