   Shooting your mouth off is a good way to get nowhere.

   Shooting your foot off gets you about the same distance.

   So here are things you should NOT put into your Resume
   as it is either painfully obvious or sends a negative image
   about you and your ability to be successful.

   So avoid these common mistakes!

   21 Words To Never Include In Your Resume  |  Glassdoor, Amy Elisa Jackson                             02/03/2017
    We have all heard the saying, “You’ll never get a second chance to make a first
    impression.” This is perhaps most true when it comes to a job resume. While many
    companies use screening software to initially evaluate a candidate’s resume,
    recruiters are largely the first people you must impress.
    “The language or content of a resume can definitely tank a job seeker’s chances of
    landing their dream job,” says Jamie Hichens, Senior Talent Acquisition Partner at
    Glassdoor. “You have a limited amount of time to catch a recruiter or hiring manager’s
    eye – use it wisely.”  Read to understand WHY these words are NOT YOUR FRIENDS.
