These Talents are so Useless but you Still Find them on every College Resume

1. JUGGLING

1

Believe it or not, some people actually put this on their resume. If it’s not a circus you’re applying to then what can juggling possibly do with the job? Juggling isn’t bad, but it isn’t relevant either.

2. LOVE FOR HARD PROBLEMS

2

What hard problems do you love? Are they related to the job? If not, why is this on the resume? Do not try to make the resume flowery, thinking that it’ll land you a better spot. Remember to be concise and highlight your relevant technical skills.

3. CAN SPEAK LATIN

3

Latin is a dead language. Unless you want to be a priest or your job revolves around dead languages, don’t write it up on the resume. It’s almost always irrelevant to the majority of jobs.

4. GREAT REFLEXES

4

If you’re applying for a desk job, how does this benefit anyone? If you’re gonna apply for anything that requires athleticism then go for it, write this down. If not, fill the lines with something that’ll make you seem more productive as an employee.

5. LOVE TO READ

5

Ah yes, the lines that make you appear smarter and more passionate. However, what exactly do you read about? Novels? Fantasy? Drama? How does make you any better at your job? Be more specific and only boast of reading relevant literature.

6. GREAT SOCIAL SKILLS

6

Why do most people feel the need to highlight this as if it’s a special skill? The moment you apply for a job on a company that has hundreds, if not thousands, of employees, being a decent and harmonic human being is already expected of you.
