2. Your university. You don’t need to include this in your headline or in your professional summary. It just takes up valuable space where you could be putting important keywords. Employers are not searching academic titles or universities to find job candidates.

3. Generic buzz words. This includes words like ‘team player’ ‘dedicated’ or ‘enthusiastic’.
