FIND CLICHÉS IN JOB LISTINGS AND APPLICATIONS

It's no secret there’s a lot of floskel* in job search, whether you're out looking for jobs or out looking for candidates. Usually, both the job listings and the cover letters are full of them.

The recruitment company Experis wanted to help people spot these with ease. And forcing companies to become better at writing job posts, and job seekers to become better at applying for them.

*Floskel is a Swedish term for clichés.
 

ANALYSE, GRADE, IMPROVE

To do this, we created a site where you can analyse any job application from the biggest job sites in Sweden. All you needed to do was provide the URL to it. The texts were then graded by how many and how bad the clichés were. Afterwards, we provided tips on how to improve the text.
