Survey: "Go-Getter" A No-Go On Resumes

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - "Go-getter" and "team player" are two phrases you might use on your resume when applying for jobs.

But a new survey from CareerBuilder says that might not be a good idea. The poll found that hiring managers find those phrases, along with "best of breed" and "think outside of the box" among the worst resume terms.

The Career Services Center at Salisbury University weighed in.

"We could never say which ones are the best or worst, because it depends on the job," said Becky Emery, director of the Career Services.

Among the best terms? "Achieved", "improved" and "trained."
