“Specialized” and “leadership” were named the two most overused buzzwords written by Indonesian professionals on their profiles in 2016, according to business and employment-oriented social networking service LinkedIn.

According to LinkedIn's data, the words were frequently used because most of the professionals were trying to highlight their specific skills and leadership abilities.

The company’s senior director and head of corporate communications for the Asia-Pacific region, Roger Pua, said in a press release that business professionals needed to make sure that their achievements and skills are reflected in the LinkedIn profiles. “While words may be an easier way to describe you, they may not be effective in bringing you to life as a professional, especially since everyone is using the same buzzwords,” he said.
