One of the job seekers that I have coached forwarded me this article: 10 Boilerplate Phrases That Kill Resumes by Liz Ryan. 

The article is about phrases that should be avoided on your resume because they can come across as being boring, corporate phrases.  She lists 10 phrases including “team player” and “proven track record of success.” 

In my recruiting experience, those phrases have been things hiring managers want in a candidate, someone who is a team player and has a proven track record of success.   I would suggest to read the job description that you are applying to and if any of the 10 phrases that are listed in the above article are mentioned, it would benefit you to have them on your resume too.
