Standard English & Proper Grammar
The grammar used on your resume says a lot about you and today we want to address capitalization.
We were recently asked:
When is it correct to spell out United States, and when should we use the abbreviations US, U.S., and USA?
As with many grammar questions, there are differences of opinion, but here are some generally accepted guidelines you can follow:
- Short forms, such as U.S., are common in casual language, and using a full name or title is considered more appropriate in formal language. So, for example, when giving a speech, you should always say "The United States of America." (The full form is also more dramatic.)
- In writing, use the full form, United States, as a noun, and U.S. (with periods inserted and no spaces) as an adjective describing another noun, as in these examples:
Finally, use of the abbreviation USA is limited. You will find it in some proper nouns, especially the names of media sources such as the newspaper USA Today, the cable television channel USA Network, and websites like USAaircraft.com. It can also be used in mailing addresses and fixed expressions such as "Made in the USA." Unless you are quoting a source, however, you do not need to use it.
- In the United States, many people work full time.
- The U.S. Postal Service is in financial trouble. (U.S. is an adjective describing Postal Service)
Why should you learn to use proper grammar?
The quality of your writing often has a huge influence on the first impression you make on people. People judge you based on how you write and speak. Taking the time to follow the rules of Standard English in your formal writing and speech allows you to present yourself in the best possible light.
We hope this helps when writing your resume!
Correct - United States Army, U.S. Army
Incorrect - US Army
Changes to the Resume Builder section of the site
We recently made some changes to the Resume Builder section of the site. These changes may require you to update your Master Profile/Resume to better align yourself with employer searches. Please log into your account as soon as possible to make the necessary changes.
When building your master profile, you are asked for your career interests. The categories of interest are divided into broad areas and your selected interests can open doors to more opportunities.
Begin by selecting three (3) general employment categories that appeal to you most.
You are more likely to be found by employers when your preferences, skills and personal interests match what an employer is looking for.
My Resume - Personal Information - Part 1 of 6
Why do I have a charge on my credit card, when I selected the Resume Hosting FREE 30 Day Trial?
When you select the Resume Hosting FREE 30 Day Trial, you might see an entry on your credit card account when you view account activity on your bank's Web site. However, if the order was for the Resume Hosting FREE 30 Day Trial you are seeing a temporary authorization rather than an actual charge, and you will never be charged for or have to pay the authorization amount.
Card authorizations are used for address verification and account standing.
These authorizations can have the temporary effect of reducing the available balance for the account, but they will automatically expire and drop off the account eventually (usually within a few days). The duration for which an authorization remains on the account varies by issuing bank or card type, and cannot be controlled by Avjobs.
Important: These authorizations are NOT charges. The cardholder will never be billed or have to pay those amounts. These items will also never appear on the cardholder's credit card statements - for most banks or card types, they can only be seen or noticed by viewing the account activity online or calling the card's customer service number.
Many banks' Web sites make a distinction between authorizations and actual charges. Double-check the entire item you're seeing - not just the description and the amount. Is there a heading, column or grouping that includes the word "pending" or "authorization"? If you see either of those words next to the item in question, you can know for sure that you're seeing an authorization rather than a charge.
If your bank's Web site does not include an indication of "pending" or "authorization" and you're not sure, please call the customer service number on the back of the card, and speak to a live representative. Ask the bank's representative to confirm for you that you are seeing a pending authorization, and not a captured charge. The representative should also be able to tell you how soon the authorization - which was created by the bank, not by Avjobs - will expire and drop off the account permanently.
