Are you guilty of using the same buzzwords when describing your professional background?

“Finding the right words to describe yourself without using all the same action verbs everyone is using is not an easy task,” says Marketer & Podcaster Belinda Esterhammer.

Often, all we need is just a little nudge and inspiration. And here are the 3 things you need to do (as per experts from Harvard and UC Berkeley too).

  • Avoid weak and passive verbs
  • Stay away from business jargon or clichés

    Loved this list! When I read about the ‘tired words’ in the portfolio, it totally sounded like mine, haha. The list of action words was amazing. Planning to use them in my online pitches too. Thank you Maroon Oak
