Actually, I think the point of striking out those phrases is that it is much more effective to briefly illustrate those skills and attitudes.

It's one thing to claim you have certain skills and attitudes but a much more effective means of conveying your skills and attitudes is to spell out a good example of a situation in which you put those skills and attitudes into practice.

Takes a little time and thought to come up with these illustrations, for sure, but your resume will certainly stand out from others once you do this!

Thanks

got to say I have a number of them on my resume. i think it's good to look at alternatives, but a lot of them really do say something about your skills and attitude.

Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.

Hiring managers want to see accomplishments, not rhetoric!
