Increasingly senior executives are realizing that they need to actively manage their career rather than merely waiting for a recruiter to call them about an opportunity. And, LinkedIn is quickly becoming the online place to project their brand. Each year LinkedIn provides a review of the most common buzz words that executives use to describe themselves and because these are so common, these are the words to avoid in your resume and LinkedIn profile. The three most overused terms in 2014 were “motivated,” “passionate” and “creative.” Also making the top ten list were “track record” and “expert”. More information can be found at LinkedIn’s Blog so that you can fine tune your resume and LinkedIn profile to stand out from the crowd.
