Are you an attorney who's creative, effective, dynamic, and motivated, with a track record showing innovative problem solving skills and extensive experience? If so, you might want to revise your resume immediately. You may well be all of those things, but the terms convey little or nothing about your abilities. According to Linked In, these words are the most overused words in the profiles of its 135 million users. "As one might expect, they’re terms that sound awfully nice but say almost nothing specific about a person. They’re the type of terms that are roughly the equivalent of listing “showing up to work” in your skills section," according to reporter Katy Steinmetz of Time.com.
