Please Stop Using These 15 Words In Your LinkedIn Profile IMMEDIATELY
LinkedIn has scoured the profiles of its 187 million members and come up with a new list of overused, useless buzzwords.

These are the words that can be an instant turnoff to a recruiter who sees them over and over again because they show that you aren't "dynamic" with great "communication skills," but the opposite.

Unlike Fuskie, I have found linked-In mostly useless. My dentist's receptionist, for example, has tried to link to my Linked-In profile.

Thanks, but absolutely NO THANKS.
