An interesting practice seems to have cropped up among self-written social media profiles. Phrases that are taboo on resumes like, “Self-motivated team player,” are creeping back into lists of job hunter credentials on LinkedIn.

It's also challenging for recruiters and employers to see past these overused terms when looking for your value proposition!
