Resumes are often filled with words like “great communication skills”, “results-oriented” and “top-notch sales professional”, prompting recruiters and hiring managers’ eyes to glaze over.

Great communicators communicate well, results-oriented people accomplish things, and great sales people sell more than others.  Exceptional people leave a trail of evidence, and a well-done resume lists outcomes that show, rather than tell by using adjectives.

“Don’t tell me how hard you worked, tell me what you accomplished.”
