Are You Really Looking For A Challenge?

A challenge is a difficult task or problem: something that is hard to do.

A lot of phrases are quite repetitive and now meaningless. Most people would be worn out from constant hurdles and “challenges”.
This is similar to other phrases such a “motivated to succeed” or “team player”.
Your CV should present your quantifiable achievements; show “challenges” you have already overcome.

Also ‘looking for a new challenge’ sounds like a description of what you want rather than how your skills can be mutually beneficial for yourself and employers.

Use examples to demonstrate the relevant benefits you can offer to an organization. Write about significant achievements in your previous positions.
