Lately everyone gives to recommend “keywords” you should not miss on a CV or professional networking profile. In many cases, useless words.
The words used both lose strength
Who does not recognize the word "quality" is somewhat worn and sometimes the opposite effect?
Many words originally have a positive meaning can be returned against abuse our use. "Quality" is a good example, but also "coach" and many others. Why? Overage, but also intrusismo, by the fact that there are people who use quality without one or coach without being (to give two examples).
There is always a loser
There is always someone who loses out, and that is what really works with principles of quality or that really has taken an official title of coach. These professionals must squeeze their brains best to make the market believe them, they are authentic.
The 10 words that can not miss on a CV
I read a few days ago Article with that headline so tempting. But it is tempting as it is misleading, because it seems to want to promote to say things that are not really or perhaps not represent. Or worse: We want to homogenize, CV make all equal.
The words that refer as "must" in all CV are:
- To get better
In those earlier words we add that a study of LinkedIn They attributed as the most used in their profiles (in Spain):
- International experience
Does that mean that these words are prohibited?
Isn't it?, of course. Just means They are worn, who they have lost part of its value and perhaps many people unconsciously- They use them even if they are not entirely certain because "everyone does". In a nutshell, If we use those words we will be one more, an undifferentiated herd members. useless words.
If we really want not to bore recruiters with useless words the key is to convey these concepts using different words. The famous "passionate" used in Anglo-Saxon profiles looks good, but does not distinguish. What if instead of "passionate about ..." talk about "I considered a benchmark in ..."? Or what if instead of "leadership" talk about "engagement team"?
Can we look ridiculous?
Expansion newspaper recently published a Article called It makes you look ridiculous and repels recruiters in this issue of words and bombast addressed in the professional qualifications. Can we look ridiculous? Perhaps it is exaggerated, but what it is sure to perceive us as unoriginal and some "ghosts".
