Is your Resume Grammar and Spelling Up to Par?
By Sharon Graham.
Resume grammar, spelling, and language are areas where most clients struggle. What you may not know is that many Canadian practitioners also have difficulty in these areas.
Many practitioners applying for the Certified Resume Strategist (CRS) credential have difficulty with the grammar, spelling, and language areas. In fact, resume grammar is where many applicants lose points in the overall work product submission and evaluation process.
As a Canadian practitioner, to provide your clients with solid resume advice, you must have above-average comprehension of the English language.
Resume grammar, spelling, and language are crucial to your success as a resume strategist. Do you know:
- The difference between an acronym and an abbreviation?
- How adjectives apply to resumes?
- Why using pronouns is not advised?
- Grammatically correct usage of numerals?
- How to apply bulleted phrases correctly?
- When capitalization is not required?
- Why parallelism is crucial?
- The correct use of serial commas and other punctuation?
- The true application of active voice and when passive is okay?
