Word-choices matter. The information you choose to include on your resume will determine whether you are invited to an interview or if your resume ends up in the shredder pile. From weak verbs to corporate buzzwords and meaningless jargon, these are the 14 words that should never appear on your resume — and the number one rule of what to include instead. 1. Think Words like “think,” “guess,” and “hope” should be banished from your resume. Concerns about coming across as arrogant are valid, but these “weak verbs” only serve to make you sound like a weak person. There’s no room for hesitancy or uncertainty on your resume. If you’re going to make it through the first stage of recruitment, you’ll need to demonstrate confidence in your abilities, which means adopting an authoritative tone.
