Describes a piece of writing that is littered with jargon and buzzwords.
Example Citation:
"Your average resume is as useful as, say, your average Time/CNN report on American soldiers gassing their own: the most enlightening revelation is not at all what the writer had in mind. The resume I have in mind is from someone applying for a designer position. Many are its fonts. The resume is fully buzzword-compliant, touting an ability for 'networking' and 'multitasking.' (Why do people think they are better off acting like computers?)"
— David J. Swift, "Searching for a Job? Be Mindful of How Many," The Plain Dealer, August 23, 1998
