State your accomplishments. Not activities, for they have little meaning and distract from accomplishments. Also, a long list of what you can do well lacks credibility.

Look at your résumé and eliminate extraneous words.

Potential employers will want to know your capabilities and what you have accomplished to date. Your resume should state these in simple and direct terms without any adjectives or qualifiers.

Put a lot of effort into preparing your resume. A well-done resume will help potential employers get a sense of what you could do for them and how you would fit into their organization.
