How Important are Buzzwords?

Buzzwords, love them or hate them, can play an important part in getting you noticed and eventually, in getting you a job. If the company that is recruiting is looking for certain skills, then these ‘buzzwords’ will be what the recruitment agency look for in CVs. Using the right words can help your CV to be found and can help a recruiter to know that you are the kind of candidate they are looking for.

Buzzwords are useful, but they do need to be used carefully as well. Don’t overuse them, and don’t try to use them in an unnatural way to get them in there. You should also be careful when using them in an interview. You don’t want to sound forced or like you are trying to second guess what the interviewer is going to be asking you, so it’s better to be yourself and to give honest answers.
