Buzzwords: 10 Words To Eliminate From Your Resume/Profile


Buzzwords: 10 Words To Eliminate From Your Resume/ProfileMarie Raperto, The Hiring Hub

Buzzwords should be eliminated from your resume, online profiles and cover letters.  These words add nothing to your brand and can distract a reader from the more important facts.  What are buzzwords?  Basically, overused words that do not describe what you do.  You may think you are a team-player but that’s your opinion.  How you describe what you have done in your career will determine if you are or not.   Get ready to clean up your resume.

LinkedIn recently put together a list of the most overused words in their online profiles.  They are:

  • Specialized
  • Leadership
  • Passionate
  • Strategic
  • Experienced
  • Focused
  • Expert
  • Certified
  • Creative
  • Excellent

You want to standout so using words that everyone else does won’t help and will keep you from having a concise, easy-to-read resume or profile.
