8. Avoid Overused Phrases
Avoiding overused phrases like “Responsible for”, “Experienced”, “Excellent Written Communication Skills”, “Team Player”, “Detail Oriented”, and “Successful” is a key aspect to make your resumé stand out.
7. Quantify Your Accomplishments
Describe your accomplishments in numbers so that your potential employers can see something real and tangible. Writing “you made sales grow by 100%” and mentioning how you did that is always better then writing “exceeded expectations”. Therefore, always find ways to put your accomplishments into numbers.
