    Re: Cv

    Hi there it would be helpful to look at a bit more of your CV to enable us to edit the repeating of "my and I" as often it is possible to come "at it" from a different direction

    Re: Cv

    It's common to simply omit the word "I" as if each sentence started with it, and to leave out determiners.

    For example, instead saying
    I managed the implementation of my company's revamped Web site, for which I reasearched and recommended vendors and I oversaw the copy writers and graphic designers and I edited all final content and layout

    You would say:
    Managed implementation of company's completed revamped Web site, including vendor research, recommendation, and selection; managed content development by copy writers and designers; served as final editor and approval authority for final content and layout.

    Does that help?
