‘Responsible’ dominates Dutch LinkedIn profiles

Social network site LinkedIn has analysed the most common words used by Dutch people in their online cvs and found ‘responsible’ has replaced ‘creative’ at the top of the list.

‘Responsible’ is also the worldwide number one. It is followed in Dutch cvs by ‘strategic’, ‘expert’, ‘creative’, innovative, ‘dynamic’, ‘driven’, ‘sustainable’ ‘effective’ and ‘analytical’.

LinkedIn advises people to adapt their profiles to show potential employers they are responsible rather than to use the word itself, Nos television said.
