    I need help to review a paragraph in my resume

    Hello,
    I added a new section with volunteer work into my resume. I will be glad if you can give me feedback for the language.
    see the below text.
    Thank you!

    I am an active volunteer in FOA (Fighting Online Anti-Semitism), a nonprofit organization which has taken on the immense challenge of monitoring and removing antisemitic content found on the internet.
    In my routine work I use OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) tools to scan and monitor social media and different websites to detect anti-Semitic content. My responsibility is to report and document this content to FOA, and to remove it.

    Re: I need help to review a paragraph in my resume

    You need a comma after "In my routine work".

    Does "OSINT" stand for Open Source Intelligence Tools? If so, you should write all four words in brackets after the acronym. Otherwise, you're saying "Open Source Intelligence Tools tools".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    OSINT means Open Source Intelligence. INT=Intelligence
    you think this is confusing for reader who is not familiar with this term?

    Thanks for the explanation. No, I think it's fine to leave it as it is. As you've written it, it's grammatically correct.
