When it comes to resumes, there are just some things you shouldn’t say about yourself. Here’s the thing, many resumes include terms like "hard worker" and "fast learner." The problem is not that these things are not true, it’s that they are so boilerplate and overused that they can actually work against you. Readers will likely see them as “fluff” so limit using them – especially if you are beyond an Entry Level candidate.
Instead, nudge the reader to suss these qualities out by providing clear, quantifiable achievements that speak to specific examples of these qualities in action.
