Make or Break Your Career: Phrases To Be Avoided In A Resume To Get A Perfect Job.

Have you heard of the phrase “First impression is the last impression”? Yes, it can be rightly construed that the first impression you make on a person is always the last. Well, maybe not always the last but the first impression you make is certainly the one that has a lasting impression. Would you like the company of a person who has lied to you on your first meeting or someone who is so impressed by himself or herself that they are completely oblivious of anyone else? Surely, the answer would be NO. The same goes for your ‘Resume’.

Your resume is basically your passport for getting a job. If the information in a passport is wrong, then of course you cannot enter another territory and the same goes for a resume. If you represent wrong or undesirable information in your resume, you can say bye-bye to a job forever. A good resume can get you a job in 10 seconds and a bad one, well, it would not take even 5 seconds for you to be rejected.

There are certain key phrases, which are essential to be written in a resume and certain others, which are a total no-no in a resume.
Avoid these….

  • I am ….” “I have…” “I will….:  Do not write in your resume, “I am a hardworking person…etc etc”. These phrases “I am”, “I have” or “I will” are not suitable for a resume. It can be written in a cover letter, but a resume has to be short, to the point consisting of brief, crisp sentences. You are presenting your credentials to the recruiter, you are not advertising yourself. So, if you want to impress the recruiter with your resume, avoid the use of these phrases.
  • Good Communication Skills:  It is not for you to decide how good or bad a conversationalist you are. Writing in a resume that you have good communication skills but behaving in a contradictory manner in the interview can really hamper your chances of getting a good job. The interviewer is a trained person and he/she can see through any façade that you are trying to put up. Let them decide how good or bad you are.
  • Good leadership Qualities”: Do not write in your resume that you are a good leader. Companies are looking for an employee, not a dictator. Do not be imperious rather present yourself as someone who is willing to work under others and is not always on a lookout for leading others.

Avoid long phrases and Narratives

You are presenting your credentials to the interviewer not telling your life history. Short and crisp sentences in a resume is the order of the day and if you write long sentences and phrases, then you may as well write your biography and give it to the recruiters.

If you keep all the above mentioned points in mind, then be sure of getting a good and deserving job. Rather than boasting about yourself in your resume, present yourself positively to the recruiters and it won’t be long before you are given due credit for it.
