Banish the Buzzwords
You wouldn’t talk like this in real life. Why talk like this in your profile?
#nobuzzwords
#nobuzzwords
Oh hey there, 2016.
You’re looking great.
#nobuzzwords
Another year of fresh starts
and new beginnings.
#nobuzzwords
With so many people updating
their LinkedIn profiles and opening
the door to new opportunities…
...perhaps you will too?
#nobuzzwords
But don’t blend in.
You may be “motivated, successful,
passionate, creative, dedicated,
dynamic and enthusiastic", but so is
everyone else.
#nobuzzwords
It’s time to banish the buzzwords
and stand out from the crowd.
#nobuzzwords
1. Leadership
2. Motivated
3. Creative
4. Passionate
5. Strategic
6. Successful
7. Driven
8. Organization
9. Dedicated
10. Extensive experience
The top 10 global buzzwords for 2016:
#nobuzzwords
How to banish the
buzzwords
#nobuzzwords
1. Stand out from the crowd
Your summary is the first thing people look at after your profile
picture. You may know you’re capable of demonstrating ‘leadership’
with a ‘great track record’ but too many buzzwords make it hard for
your profile to stand out. Use examples of your experience, focus on
how you’ve demonstrated leadership with specific examples and
highlight those great results with real numbers.
#nobuzzwords
2. A picture’s worth a thousand words
Instead of saying you’re ‘creative’, why not show people by
including presentations, design work and projects you take pride in?
Remember, you’ve only got five to ten seconds to impress.
#nobuzzwords
3. Share views and news
So you have ‘extensive experience and great communication skills’?
Tell the world by updating your status or publishing a post on
LinkedIn. By offering your opinions on industry matters, you’re
positioning yourself as a thought leader and sharing your
knowledge.
#nobuzzwords
4. Get to know people like you
If you want to show you are ‘motivated’ about succeeding in your
industry, join a group. Share your thoughts on news or articles to
show you care about the sector and widen your network. Members
who are active in groups get 15x more profile views than members
who don’t take part.
#nobuzzwords
5. Recommend a friend
If you think someone’s ‘exceptional’, why not say it? Spend time
writing meaningful recommendations and endorsing your
connections. Not only does this show you really know them, it also
means they are more likely to return the favour. A couple of
glowing recommendations are worth a hundred buzzwords.

Banish The Buzzwords

  • 1. Banish the Buzzwords You wouldn’t talk like this in real life. Why talk like this in your profile? #nobuzzwords
  • 2. #nobuzzwords Oh hey there, 2016. You’re looking great.
  • 3. #nobuzzwords Another year of fresh starts and new beginnings.
  • 4. #nobuzzwords With so many people updating their LinkedIn profiles and opening the door to new opportunities… ...perhaps you will too?
  • 5. #nobuzzwords But don’t blend in. You may be “motivated, successful, passionate, creative, dedicated, dynamic and enthusiastic", but so is everyone else.
  • 6. #nobuzzwords It’s time to banish the buzzwords and stand out from the crowd.
  • 7. #nobuzzwords 1. Leadership 2. Motivated 3. Creative 4. Passionate 5. Strategic 6. Successful 7. Driven 8. Organization 9. Dedicated 10. Extensive experience The top 10 global buzzwords for 2016:
  • 8.
  • 9.
  • 10.
  • 11.
  • 12.
  • 13. #nobuzzwords How to banish the buzzwords
  • 14. #nobuzzwords 1. Stand out from the crowd Your summary is the first thing people look at after your profile picture. You may know you’re capable of demonstrating ‘leadership’ with a ‘great track record’ but too many buzzwords make it hard for your profile to stand out. Use examples of your experience, focus on how you’ve demonstrated leadership with specific examples and highlight those great results with real numbers.
  • 15. #nobuzzwords 2. A picture’s worth a thousand words Instead of saying you’re ‘creative’, why not show people by including presentations, design work and projects you take pride in? Remember, you’ve only got five to ten seconds to impress.
  • 16. #nobuzzwords 3. Share views and news So you have ‘extensive experience and great communication skills’? Tell the world by updating your status or publishing a post on LinkedIn. By offering your opinions on industry matters, you’re positioning yourself as a thought leader and sharing your knowledge.
  • 17. #nobuzzwords 4. Get to know people like you If you want to show you are ‘motivated’ about succeeding in your industry, join a group. Share your thoughts on news or articles to show you care about the sector and widen your network. Members who are active in groups get 15x more profile views than members who don’t take part.
  • 18. #nobuzzwords 5. Recommend a friend If you think someone’s ‘exceptional’, why not say it? Spend time writing meaningful recommendations and endorsing your connections. Not only does this show you really know them, it also means they are more likely to return the favour. A couple of glowing recommendations are worth a hundred buzzwords.
