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.
