1) A good rule of thumb is to avoid using personal pronouns (especially "I") in a resume. Everything on your resume pertains to you...

2) Using adjectives like "talented," "outstanding," "rare," etc. also makes little sense. Any of us can add them to the resume, none of us would write: “I’m NOT talented...”

Strengthening experience descriptions is not about adding beautiful words and phrases. It's about showing potential employers that you can deliver results.
