Do we use the term 'Expert' all too often?

Vlog Capture















After being referred to as an expert during a meeting the other day I'd like to pose the question; are we using the term 'expert' a little too often?

We see the word 'expert' used every day on CV's, LinkedIn profiles etc; sometimes in cases where a person has entry level experience or a very basic level of knowledge. I witnessed a basic question by a young recruiter on a LinkedIn recruitment forum a while ago. When I looked into this person's LinkedIn profile he'd promoted himself as a 'recruitment expert' which is falsely advertising his level of knowledge.

So there's my first Vlog, first of many I hope. Thanks for watching.
