Worst Resume Word: Experienced

February 15, 2009

I can’t think of another word that is bad for your resume than Experienced. Why you ask? Doesn’t everyone want an employ that is experienced? Yes, it is true that you need to have experience to get a job, but if you have to say “experienced,” in your resume you obviously don’t have it. The entire idea of a resume is that it conveys your confidence and experience to the employer so that you can do the job that is needed. You should have real concrete detail of what you are experienced in instead of just saying that you have it. The real professionals know how to convey experience without wasting the word.
