How Your Resume Buzzwords Get You Rejected

Are resume buzzwords an HR buzz kill? This is a guest post by Tabitha Flack. If you’d also like to guest post here on JobMob, follow these guest post guidelines. As a recruiter, I can tell you that buzzwords are funnily enough a bit of a buzzword at the moment in the employment sector, and have been for some time. It is all about throwing back all-important indicators to hiring managers and HR teams showing that you know what you are talking about. And to an extent I would agree with this argument, but not wholeheartedly: * If you are formatting your CV and want to make the "argument of you" compelling to your potential employer and easily navigable for an HR team member, then this is certainly the best way to go about it. * If you want to make yourself sound flashy by calling yourself a Ninja, Guru, Superstar, or Demi-God, they probably won't be so interested.
