CV Word Checker contains a list of phrases which will produce a negative impact on your CV, resume or LinkedIn profile.

The table on the right displays these phrases. The main problem with the majority of them is that they are cliches. That is they are overused phrases which completely lack originality. People who have the job of recruiting employees are bored with hearing the same old phrases and will favour applications from people who do not use them.

Examples of these cliches include born leader, hard working, innovative thinker, people person and team player. Theses are all antiquated and can destroy a CV, resume or LinkedIn profile.
