LinkedIn has a list
of the most commonly used words
The media has grasped onto this list
and is waving it around
as words we shouldn’t use.
No where are clichés
more warranted than on a resume.
Yes, state your unique experience
but also throw in the keywords.
(And I do think of them
more as keywords
Because Human Resource zombies
have that damn filtering list
and they’re looking for these words.
Sometimes these filters are even automated
so if you don’t have a perfect match,
Clichés on your resume
are NOT a bad thing.
