A List of Harmful Words You Should Avoid on Your Resume

You should avoid words that don't advertise or oversell your skills. Even one of these words may slightly show your ego or ignorance, instead of showing your professional image.

Words that don't advertise your resume: never, nothing, awful, bad, fault, hate, mistake, panic, problem.

Words that oversell your resume: best, think outside of the box, go-to person, go-getter, results-driven, hard worker, self-motivated.
