Your exhaustive LinkedIn profile or five-page resume tells readers a lot. Unfortunately, the message they may be sending could be working against you.

So, if you are including every position you’ve ever held, all the content of your job descriptions, or a detailed rundown of every single accomplishment, you could be inadvertently communicating a lack of confidence or, even worse, desperation.
When it comes to marketing your skills, unless you are in some very specialized fields like Medicine and Academia, brevity and focus are hallmarks of professional expertise.
