Hi there everyone,
I would like to confirm that in a CV - as in other short, notice-like forms of writing - I shouldn't use an enormous amount of articles.

I don't think there is any reason to use or not use articles in a cv. It depends on how you want it to read. Whatever you decide, keep to that for all usage in the document.
