Resume Writing Rule – Don’t Use Common Abbreviations and Acronyms

Be careful when using common abbreviations and acronyms. Misuse them and you may come off as a doofus.

For example, in a resume never use LMFAO as it is too casual. Always spell it out completely.

Bad: I have over 25 years experience with iPhone application development, LMFAO!

Good: I have over 25 years experience with iPhone application development, laugh my fucking ass off!

Note: If you are applying for a job in the UK, or one of its former colonies, use the Queen’s English and use arse instead of ass. This will demonstrate your sophistication and your flexibility.
