Someone asked me to take a look at their resume for them. They are looking for an entry level job with two positions for experience.
One place I have gone back and forth about was their skills section, where they listed items like "proven self-starter requiring little to no supervision to accomplish expected tasks".
On one hand, I feel like that is such a basic expectation of employees that it should go without saying. On the other hand, I'm well aware that many employees do not live up to this expectation.
Two other examples are "able to interact with patrons of varying temperaments" and "Able to quickly digest and implement guidance learned from management".
Is there a general way to address these basic expectations?
