Good article that is right on!

Often a recruiter in HR or other HR person will review resumes before the hiring manager sees it. I can tell you that resumes get an initial screen lasting about 10 - 15 seconds. The more fluff and beating around the bush there is...the quicker you simply run out of time.

Fluff and beating around the bush is an obstruction...it is noise...distracting from what should really be easily seen in the resume.
