Don't use these three words on your resume

Maybe don't bother placing you're resume there if it has one of these most-common resume words.

This final note today, courtesy of the professional networking site LinkedIn.

Their year-end list of the most overused buzzwords on user profiles (resumes, basically)...

'Responsible' is number one.

You're gonna have to do better than that if you wanna get a job, people.

'Strategy' is second...

'Creative' is third.

So hey, let's get creative out there, shall we?
