There are only so many adjectives you can use to describe your achievments. LinkedIn has just released the most overused words and phrases in members’ LinkedIn profiles in the U.S., and the results aren’t surprising.

Extensive experience took the top spot followed by Innovative and Motivated. Other popular keywords used in member profiles include Results-oriented, Dynamic, Proven track record, Team player, Fast-paced, Problem solver and Entrepreneurial. Results are similar for members outside the U.S. For example, France’s most-used word is Innovative while Spain’s most popular buzzword is Dynamic.

LinkedIn advises members who have used any of these words to replace these terms with actionable information and phrases.
