This book actually looks GOOD & you can borrow it for FREE from the library woot! It says, "How do I get my resume in front the hiring manager, and how do I use the Internet to do it? Includes over 100 samples of real-life resumés and cover letters, founded in real-life experience without the rigid resume-writing rules of other guides, ideal for all job seekers, from new grads to the laid off worker, new mothers to senior citizens." It looks like it's for today's generational job seekers and not from the 90's which is refreshing, haha. NO more Idiots Guide to Resumes for me...all set with those books. I feel like all I find is the SAME information out there about resumes and job hunting, so I am excited to get my hands on this one. Plus, why spend the 10 bucks on Amazon when the library is freeeeeeee?!

True, you may be the most hardworking person of all time, but by saying, “I am a hard worker” during an interview (or on your resume) you are selling yourself short. NO one wants to be that person who is generic and unoriginal, because chances are the interviewers have it heard that description a few hundred times before. Instead make yourself stand out!
The next time you are asked why they should hire you, use specific examples that will demonstrate HOW you are hard working without ever saying it. You can also move this info over to your resume as well.
For example someone could say… "I created [insert project or accomplishment] from scratch within a 1-month period which in turn [insert amazing result].” Be as specific as you can to showcase your skills.
Remember to stand out and SHOW why you are a hard worker instead of simply stating it.
During your endless round of interviews, you will undoubtedly be asked what your weaknesses are. You do not want to tell the potential employer that you don't have any, and you definitely don't want to give positives as a weakness ("I work too hard!")
This article actually gives excellent advice on how to answer this question, and the most important part is, they tell you to follow up the weakness with steps you are taking to correct it. It tells the employer that you know your areas of improvement and work to implement a fix to these deficiencies.
I didn't write this article, I am simply sharing because I found it useful.
