Q: You've mentioned that some people will make the mistake of using a third person voice on their resumes. Please explain what this is (so I don’t do it).
A: Many people requested this clarification regarding my last post on implied articles. Always use implied first person rather than third person on a resume.
Instead of using a third person voice:
Mr. Smith secured 14 new clients in one month by leveraging his deep experience in Sales and Business Development.
You’d want to use implied first person:
Secured 14 new clients in one month by leveraging deep experience in Sales and Business Development.
I think the example communicates the concept far more effectively than an explanation can.
Again, these can be especially tricky concepts to understand, so be sure to send off an e-mail if you need clarification.
