6 Words That Should Never Appear on a Resume

6 Words That Should Never Appear on a Resume | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Despite the fact that hiring managers now ask for a variety of application materials, resumes are still an extremely important part of the process. And because they’re so important, people usually feel the need to use old-fashioned, stilted, and even cliché language when writing them.

While this might not sound like a huge issue, take a moment to remember that your resume is just one of many that are being reviewed for the position, often times, by just one person. If the person reading it can’t understand what you’re trying to get across, or is mildly annoyed by your fluffy word choices, or is getting déjà vu from a similar resume, you have a problem. Remember it’s the hiring manager’s job to skim your resume, not to read between the lines and decipher what makes you unique.

To make sure you don’t suffer from language that will get your resume placed in the “no” pile, remove these six words from your resume.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

These outdated words don't give you an accurate insight into a potential employee's work history. Here are some better alternatives.

6 ways to build career skills on your own

6 ways to build career skills on your own | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

At some companies, your boss will actively suggest that you attend conferences or provide opportunities for on-the-job training. But, there are also many jobs that rely on you to develop your skill set.

Even if your organization won't pay for (or doesn't offer) training, there are several things you can do to work your way toward that next promotion or remain competent and coveted in your field. And — better yet — most of them don't cost much at all.

Meet The Boss Of The Future

Meet The Boss Of The Future | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

We work in an ever-changing, hyperconnected, world-scattered workplace. As the way we work changes, so too will the boss's role need to shift to meet those demands.


Take, for example, the very makeup of the U.S. workforce. One in every three Americans is a freelancer of some sort, according to a 2014 survey by Freelancers Union and Elance. This includes independent contractors, moonlighters, people working temporary or multiple jobs, and freelance business owners. Many expect this figure will increase to up to 50% by 2020, filling half the workforce with free agents.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

The power is shifting, and what it means to be a great boss is taking a dramatic turn.

John Norman's curator insight, May 20, 7:49 PM

With the ever increasing speed and spread of global communications the dynamic boss of the future will need to develop better communications skills if they are to stay connected with their staff. None of this technologies can ever fully replace the warmth of face to face meeting. We are a social animal but bosses will need to improve the feeling of connectedness with their staff as more and more work remotely.

12 Things Successful People Reveal About Themselves At Work

12 Things Successful People Reveal About Themselves At Work | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

My fellow columnist here at Inc., Dr Travis Bradberry, wrote an excellent article on the 12 things you should NEVER reveal about yourself at work. It made me consider this from the other side. I have seen all of the mistakes and mis-steps that Dr Bradberry identified, but telling people what to avoid is only half the battle. What can you reveal about yourself that can help you?

I have spoken with some of the most successful people I have had the pleasure to work with, and reflected on two decades of interactions with successful people to come up with what I believe is a comparable list of things you see in winners.
