"Resume Buzzwords: The Good and the Bad"

Resumes can be tough and tedious to write, especially if you’re not used to selling yourself. They’re a space in which you have to tell potential employers how great you are and why you’re the best person for the job. Most of us are pretty uncomfortable doing that.

Buzzwords offer us an easy out here. These set words and phrases seem to tick all the boxes, telling the employer what they want to hear. The problem is that they’re often hollow and end up doing the opposite.

If not backed up by anything concrete, it can appear that your buzzwords are being used to mask incompetence. They tend to be words or phrases that anyone can say, and for that reason, are seen as meaningless.

This article will act as a guide to help you write the best resume you can by identifying and eliminating buzzwords that don't have any substance. If you know what buzzwords are, why we use them and how to avoid the worst offenders, your resume will be improved drastically.
