Tip-offs to a too-wordy resume that fails to distinguish your skills:
- Your bullet-point sentences are longer than 2 or 3 lines, making them nearly impossible to scan quickly;
- You’ve started many phrases or sentences with the same word, which weakens your message;
- Your performance results are buried all the way at the end of each sentence, and are therefore hard to find, with minimal brand impact;
- You’ve added too many adjectives and adverbs, with every achievement noted as “outstanding,” “exceptional,” and worst of all, “successful.” (Employers certainly hope this is the case!).
