Calling yourself "creative" is getting less and less creative.

LinkedIn (LNKD) has released its list of the most overused buzzwords on LinkedIn Profiles, and for the second year in a row, "creative" tops the list.

Come on, people, be innovative. Use something more effective.

Uh, "innovative" and "effective" are also on the list.

Here are the ten words popping up most often in profiles of U.S. professionals:

1. Creative (translation:I breathe)

2. Organizational (What? Are you "organized" or "organizational?")

3. Effective (zzzz)

4. Motivated (yawn)

5. Extensive experience (blah blah blah)

6. Track record

7. Innovative

8. Responsible

9. Analytical

10. Problem solving (This one has got to go ... it makes my eyes glaze over)

I loved this.... I actually would have nothing left to say about myself... the list says it all, but apparently, I wouldn't be able to say it. Unhappy

Thanks, 
Marilyn
