Truly highlight what you offer, dont hijack other peoples qualities. Use care in choosing words that reflect your professionalism and background. Sprinkling in words that dont define who you are will make your resume suspect. As an example, many jobseekers use the word "loyal" in their resume, but a quick read of the resume reveals they held three jobs in the last five years.
Now, consider instead what happens if your resume is one of the 5% of resumes that achieves above average results. Assume it makes interviews happen not 5% of the time, but 50% of the time (a hit rate that is often achieved or exceeded). If you go job hunting with that resume and you apply for 10 jobs in your first week and your resume is only 50% effective in generating interviews, the odds are that you will have five interviews by the end of your third week (allowing a week between resume arrival and interview date), and at least one job offer from interviews 2 through 5. You might even get more than one job offer, which is a lovely piece of paper to have in your back pocket when negotiating the final details of your compensation package with your preferred employer.
Tip #5 - Use Keywords and Action Words - Often people fall into a rut when writing a resume and use bland and general terms. If you want to get attention, you need to use keywords and action words throughout your resume. You can identify keywords to use by looking at the job advertisement and the job description. Take the terms used and try to incorporate them through your resume to show that you are qualified for the job. Also be sure to use action words as well throughout your resume to give it a powerful feel.
