Excessively Effusive?

This Week’s Advice:

“Are you overdoing it with adjectives and modifiers in your resume? A resume with too many adjectives, especially entire strings of them, is worse than a resume with little or no description. Double check that you have no more than two adjectives together in a sentence and be sure to remove sentences like ‘Detail-oriented, customer-centric, dedicated Sales Executive…’ in your summary.”
