October 23, 2013, 3:06 PM — Career and leadership experts love talking about soft skills and we love writing about them because they are so incredibly important to today's professional.

The ability to speak and write clearly is a huge advantage for job-seekers, in fact, it's No. 1, career expert and CEO Mark Babbitt tells YouTurn. Yet "excellent oral and written communication skills" is one of several cliches you should ensure you leave off your resume.

"The reality is that in about 3 seconds the recruiter is going to make their own determination about the quality of your communication skills," he notes. "If you pass that test, they’ll test you again on a Skype interview, or with a follow-up e-mail. If you don’t pass that test (lack of confidence, poor professionalism, typos, inconsistent messaging, redundancy, etc.) the recruiter now knows your resume is less than sincere… and you are not a top tier candidate."
