Buzzwords in Job Postings?

1 Mins read

Buzzwords can be useful in the workplace, but should employers use them in job openings?

Preply surveyed 1,500 American workers to better understand the effect that language like this can have on the application process, and found that it can make a difference.

Key takeaways:

  • 70% of workers say the use of trendy language in a job posting has influenced their decision to apply for a job.
  • Only 1-in-5 have decided not to apply for a job due to business related buzzwords.
  • The terms most likely to be red flags for job seekers: 1. Rockstar 2. Wear many hats 3. Thick skin 4. Work hard, play hard 5. Schedule TBD.
  • The terms least likely to be red flags: 1. Proactive 2. Empower 3. Leverage 4. Perks and benefits 5. Proven track record.
