LinkedIn have released a list of the most overused words by Irish profile holders on their website.

They looked under the bonnet and put it up the flagpole and found that passionate, focused and creative are used liberally and often without too much substance.

Wendy Murphy of LinkedIn writes:

To highlight how ineffective it is to rely on these buzzwords are, we imagined what they would look like as self-descriptors for some of Ireland’s best known historical figures. The one thing that all of these Irish icons have in common is that they let their work talk for them.

This is a lesson we would encourage everyone to learn from. Bring your professional accomplishments to life by sharing samples of your work on LinkedIn like presentations or photos from events to demonstrate how you live these buzzwords, not merely say them.
