Are you creative, happy and responsible person? Well that’s great! But I am sorry to tell you that won’t help you much in your CV. Why? Because everyone else that writes a CV is also happy, creative and responsible!
Here is a list of the most oft-repeated words that you should avoid (source LinkedIn);
- Good communication skills
- Ready for new challenges
The list goes on, but it’s same for all of them. If you use these words you’re only decorating the cover letter. The basic rule is: Every time you use a describing word, you should be able to prove it. Otherwise it’s a waste of time.
Remember, no one needs to know if you are a happy or a positive fella. They only want to know why they should hire you.
