There are a lot of people looking for jobs and that means polishing up the old resume. But Liz Ryan of Yahoo! and Hot Jobs warns things have changed over the years.

A storng resume no longer means grabbing catch phrases from one of those boilerplate resume books. Ryan said some phrases mark you as uncreative and vocabulary challenged. The following are the 10 worst boilerplate phrases you should keep OUT of your resume.

1) Results Oriented
2) Cross Functional Teams
3) "X" Years Experience
4) Communications Skills
5) Strong Work Ethic
6) Exceeded Expectations
7) Track Record of Success
8) Works Well With Staff
9) Team Player
10) Bottom Line Orientation

Ryan said you can do better and sound more human by ditching the catch phrases everyone else has used in the past that sound like a robot wrote them.
