According to a list compiled by LinkedIn, phrases or words such as above, and others like 'problem solver' or 'motivated' are the most over-used cliches seen in CVs.

"These phrases can appear empty to a potential employer and may do more harm than good when you include them in your profile or resume," the Daily Mail quoted a spokesperson for LinkedIn as saying.

"If you're using any of these ten terms, wipe them out," he added.

The top 10 words you should steer clear of:

Motivated

Extensive experience

Innovative

Proven track record

Dynamic

Team player

Proactive

Entrepreneurial

Skill set

Problem solver
