This is the number one reason resumes fail. Entry level candidates fall victim to this flaw more often than more experienced workers but it's a more or less universal problem. If you've ever had to review literally hundreds of resumes in one sitting while looking for people with specific qualifications, you would understand why a too general resume is rejected almost instantly. If you don't know what you want to do, don't expect a recruiter to figure it out for you.
When keeping track of the details, dont forget to make them specific. That is, if youre jotting down a specific project that you initiated and oversaw, be specific about the number of people you managed, how much money and what items were listed in the budget, how much money was made, how many hours your employees worked, etc. The idea is to be as specific as possible so that a prospective employer down the line can visualize your contributions to a tee.
One major turnoff for hiring managers is to see extremely dense paragraphs on a resume. If you have paragraphs that are longer than four to five lines, theres a good chance that you wont hear anything back from the company. Looking through resumes is already a tedious job for hiring managers. It certainly doesnt need to be complicated with long explanations.
You are promoting your strong points which is why you should focus on highlighting your achievements from previous jobs that are relevant to the position you are applying for now.
