At the end of 2011, the analytics team at LinkedIn had a look at the most common buzzwords on people’s LinkedIn profiles. What we found interesting is that there was one particular buzzword that was number one in quite a few countries including Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, the Netherlands and here in Canada. The word? ‘creative’.


Given the large international representation of LinkedIn’s members, here are the number one buzzwords for a selection of countries across the globe:

Creative: Australia, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, UK, US

Multinational: Brazil

Dynamic: France

Effective: India

Problem solving: Italy

Motivated: Ireland

Managerial: Spain

Track record: Singapore

Do you use the word ‘creative’ on your LinkedIn profile?
