As we all learn in grammar school: words can hurt.
This is especially true for job seekers. The right words will impress a recruiter or hiring manager enough to offer you an interview. The wrong words not only hurt your personal brand, they can cost you that interview.
Our friends at Grammarly looked at 500 job postings from the 100 most profitable companies in the US. They then assessed how certain words were used to express hiring priorities. This excellent infographic shows what they found, and how you can revise your resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile to go “above and beyond” employer expectations.
Take a look… and then choose your words carefully!
