Excess wording in paragraphs that go on and on and on are not needed and usually not read. The work performed by the individual reflected on the resume should speak for itself. For example, I often see the phrase “successfully implemented” which to me is implied because it was implemented. Would it have been implemented if it were not successful? Would someone even mention it if it was not successful? My point is there are a lot of words in bullet points that can be cut out to get to the heart of the matter.
I have seen top summaries with a list of praiseworthy words that string along to eternity when one or two are sufficient as recruiters and hiring managers will get the sense of who the individual is with just the facts.
I hope this helps when writing a resume! Any questions or comments are always welcome!
Have a great day! Sue
