I just learned this morning that resume writers are advised not to use
personal pronouns:

How about your resume? Do you leave pronouns out? And if you are
responsible for hiring, does the appearance of pronouns (even just a
few) put you off the candidate?

Looking at my current, I see that I have one "I" for each job listed.
