Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatars Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the grassroots level.
I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics, Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Words not to be used in CV’s

Melbourne - Creative is the most overused buzzword in LinkedIn profiles followed by effective, motivated and extensive experience, the social networking site has said.

According to career expert David Schwarz, using buzzwords not only makes your CV generic but it can give the impression that you are trying to mislead your prospective employer.

“They create almost a sense of misleading because they gloss over the detail,” quoted Schwarz, a principal consultant at career management firm Board Portfolio, as saying.

Schwarz said that everything you put in a resume needs to be backed up with proof.

“If you can’t put a metric or a statistic next to that statement shouldn’t have it in your CV,” he said.

He added that candidates should never include aspiration statements in their resume.

“‘I want to be, or my goal is, or in the future I want’, they’re all massive red flags because they all basically say you’re not qualified to do the job you’re doing now,” he added.

The top 10 buzzwords that appear most in profiles are:

Extensive experience
Track record
Communication skills
