The word "awesome" in job descriptions

the word awesome

"Let's start with awesome. As of this writing, out of 36,469 jobs we looked at for Seattle, 552 of them include awesome. That's 1.5%. Out of 53,523 jobs for San Francisco, 1,662 include awesome. That's over 3%! So a job in San Francisco is twice as likely to contain the word awesome as Seattle."

Beth, I added a picture telling people to stop using the word awesome in job descriptions.

It's overused so much as to be meaningless.

Good one. It's like the word "cool."  Best to try to expand our vocabularies beyond those two words. (Remarkable is one of my favorite replacements.)

Remarkable is wonderful. :)
