Avoid cliches, LinkedIn tells Dutch members

Dutch members of the business-orientated networking site LinkedIn would do well to strip a number of cliches out of their personal profiles, the organisation said on Monday.

In particular Dutch users are prone to describe themselves as ‘innovative, dynamic and a team player’. ‘Extensive experience’ and ‘proven track record’ are also common Dutch cliches the organisation said.
