Another week has come and gone, and what better way to catch-up with the latest news than reading our weekly recruitment roundup.

Global Edtech Startup Awards

On another note, we enjoyed a fantastic night at the Global Edtech Startup Awards. The awards identify, showcase and recognise EdTech startups from all over the world! Congratulations to all the finalists and winners on the night!

LinkedIn Profile Buzzwords

LinkedIn is an excellent platform for users to enhance their professional profiles. The professional network is also a useful platform that allows users to spruce up their professional experience and with that, sees many buzzwords creep onto their profiles. ‘Experienced’ and ‘Specialist’ are two to make the list. Recruiting and HR professionals will be all too familiar with some of these.

Jon Addison, Head of Talent Solutions at LinkedIn UK also shared this view saying ” Those working in HR and recruitment know just how important keywords can be when it comes to identifying the ideal candidate,”.

Below is a list of the top 10 LinkedIn Profile Buzzwords;
