I am spending an inordinate amount of time reviewing resumes and one particular word keeps appearing throughout many of the resumes. The word is…
Perhaps the most insipid phrase is this – “proven track record.”
Every time I see this phrase I immediately want the candidate to prove it. In most instances, the quoted achievement would be difficult to prove to an outsider. That fact makes this throw-away phrase easy to included. My personal take is to have the candidates simply state their record in numbers.
