I agree with you! I mean, I’ve stayed in my industry for 3 different companies/jobs so far, but I always spell things out on my resume instead of using the acronyms, even though I know the HR manager knows what I mean. And make sure to use really simple terms like: Marketing and Business Development, even though it gets a lot more complicated than that.

I’m not in HR, but I’ve passed on my fair share of Resumes and I think it’s so funny how little time some people obviously spend on their resumes. I make so many spelling corrections and have to clean up so many wordy explanations.. I don’t want to pass the resume on until it’s perfect b/c it’s a reflection on me.

Ugh, I’m glad I don’t have to read resume’s anymore! 

Also, focus on accomplishments and goal achievements… not just duties. OK, so you were a sales rep. Um… how’d that go? Oh, you tripled business in your territory within 6 months? You surpassed your sales goal by 15%? Well, we should probably know that!
