The funny thing about catchphrases or business buzzwords is that they initially came from a good place.

Every industry has its own buzzwords and catchphrases, and the human resources profession is no different. It has hundreds.

In all team environments, good communication is fundamental and great communication is critical to excellence.  I have found through observation that there are basically four actions necessary for optimal communication.  At the risk of sounding contrived, disingenuous, and plain ol’ corny, I put the main points in an alliteration.

On a daily basis, people send “hasty” emails which may not reflect the best representation of their intended message. But before you hit send prematurely, remember these few things in order to communicate your message clearly and professionally:
 
  • Always proofread your email prior to sending, no matter if you are in a hurry.
  • Traditional letter writing skills still apply to emails.

Naturally, as a full time recruiter I spend an exorbitant amount of time pursuing LinkedIn profiles. It’s a recruiter’s most frequent online destination when being charged with filling a job opening.

These are profiles that have all the right endorsements and employment experience but are hamstrung by a truly cringe worthy profile photo.
