Put a little action into your job search

➔    More than once we have advised staying away from acronyms on your resume – and other job search postings (i.e. LinkedIn, etc.).  Unless it’s something unmistakable such as FBI, IBM, IRS, etc., you can’t assume that the person you’re contacting has any idea to what you are referring or that your acronym has any impact whatsoever.

    The same can be said of job titles and job descriptions.
