    word help

    Hi, everyone.

    In a resume, how to state that one is the only contributor of a software project?

    For example

    ....
    2005-2006, Team Leader, Project 1
    2006-2007, ????????????, Project 2
    ...

    Thank you in advance.

    Another question.

    How to describe my contribution in a successful project in a brief, formal way when I played a neither key nor trivial role?
    I want to put it in my resume as one of my achievements.

    Thank you in advance.

    Eny :)

    You could say that you played a key role if it wasn't trivial. All members of a team are 'key' if the project could not have been done without them. Why downgrade your achievements for your resume?
    But if you want to be meticulously honest, how about, "an important supporting role"? Or you could give your specific role: "I contributed to this project as design assistant", or whatever.

    No. I thought of that. But firstly, there was only circumstantial evidence that this was a job title list. It may have been a "What I was doing" list.
    And secondly, there is no appropriate job title for the information given. What would you suggest?

    If I was a Senior Team Member I might state this instead; if I was a Junior Team Member I would stick with 'Team Member'.

    But she wasn't in a team. She did the project by herself.

    So she was the sole person working on the project but then on the next project she's demoted to a mere 'Team Leader'? Possible but I very much doubt it. I'll wager:

    "In a resume, how to state that one is the only contributor of a software project?"

    was meant to read:

    "In a resume, how would you state that one is only a contributor to a software project?"

    Though I'm happy to stand corrected if enydia replies otherwise.
