LinkedIn recently released their list of the top ten most overused professional buzzwords people are using in their profiles. Although the social networking site has added more than 50 million users since the 2011 list was released, 2012’s top word remains “creative.”
Are you a culprit? Check out the info graphic below that shows buzzwords by country, and consider this list for the United States:

With so many of us using LinkedIn as a job search source these days, especially the online-savvy folks such as yourselves – being online students and all – it’s really important to be making the best impression you can across the web. I know I have the majority of these words in my profile, so guess what I’ll be doing over the next few weeks…yep, a profile overhaul. Who wants to sound like every other applicant in a human resource manager’s inbox?
