Using the Language of your Industry

Posted on July 3, 2019 at 11:37 pm

Buzzwords aren’t always the best option. They can make you sound like you don’t really have in-depth, broad knowledge, and are instead trying to sell yourself with the odd phrase you have picked up along the way. However, if you use buzzwords cleverly, you can make yourself sound very knowledgeable indeed, and demonstrate your understanding of the industry.

If there are certain industry terms and jargon, show that you understand them. This will show a recruiter that you have experience and are comfortable talking in the language of the people who will hopefully be employing you. This can only serve to work in your favour, showing that you have all the capabilities they want. If you can, explain key terms and jargon as well, in conversation, to show that you do have a good understanding of what they actually mean. Language is important, so make sure you use it wisely.
