Resume Tip #5

Resume Tip:  Avoid using acronyms in your resume, especially terms that are unique to your employer.

Most organizations develop terms and acronyms that are unique to the firm.  Using these terms on a resume will usually confuse the reader.  You are better off replacing terms with more general words that have a similar meaning.


If you are unsure if the terms in your resume are widely known or obscure, get an opinion from someone outside your company or industry.
