Posted on Monday, September 16th, 2013 by

Presenting yourself as ‘hard working,’ ‘motivated’ or ‘a team player’ may no longer be the key to getting an interview. For the words have become the most over used on CVs, making them meaningless to employers and doing little to make candidates stand out. So many people now follow a standard format when applying for a job, using buzz words and descriptions they know prospective employers want to hear, the majority now think they do little to tell them about the personalities and real skills of applicants.
