Check this out- 10 words to remove from your resume: 

LinkedIn just released the most overused words in its 135 million user profiles. They are:

1.    Creative
2.    Organizational
3.    Effective
4.    Extensive experience
5.    Track record
6.    Motivated
8.    Problem solving
9.    Communication skills
10.  Dynamic

How about, Creative Problem Solver?

Would you remove any of these words from your resume?

I am too old and too rich in experiences to need a resume. Just want to keep it all flowing ....

Re: 10 words to remove from your resume ??

I would probably remove:

-Extensive experience
-Track record

The work and educational experience would reflect both of these qualities. Innovative is pretty much the same as a creative problem solver to me...
