Review on Jobs & Applications

Never use a long word where a short one will do. Keep your language simple and to the point. When Ernest Hemingway was criticised by William Faulkner for using short and simple words, he replied, "Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words? He thinks I don't know the ten-dollar words. I know them all right. But there are older and simpler and better words, and those are the ones I use."

If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out. Like great literature, when it comes to job applications, less is more.
