In all that we do, communication is a vital component of our daily lives. Although it is important to verbally communicate in the workplace, it is just as crucial to express one’s thoughts and feelings through written communication.
From the time that you begin your job search and start submitting applications, employers are checking for proper grammar. In most cases, employers heavily review the information provided on a resume prior to contacting an individual to set up an interview. A resume must have the potential to speak for you when you are unable to speak for yourself in addition to being able to stand out from other applicants.
Below is a great tip that can be utilized on your resume or any paper that you write:
Avoid the first person pronoun
The pronoun I has no place in a resume — and for a logical reason: Who else would you be talking about if not yourself?
Instead of this:
I demonstrated professionalism, tact, and diplomacy while I worked with our customers in high-pressure situations.
Demonstrated professionalism, tact, and diplomacy while working with customers in high-pressure situations.
