What writing style should you use in your CV?

When writing your CV, avoid this writing style:

❗️✏️"Throughout my illustrious career, I have amassed an exceptional repertoire of cutting-edge technological implementations, spearheading transformative initiatives that have revolutionised the industry landscape. Leveraging my unparalleled expertise in bla, bla, bla...."

And go more for this style:

✅ ✏️ "Experienced IT professional with 8 years experience in implementing XYZ technologies and driving business outcomes. Proficient in complex infrastructure architectures and enterprise software development."

Even if it might feel counterintuitive, a straightforward approach projects more confidence, whereas an excessive self-promoted approach can backfire as it can raise questions on whether you are misrepresenting your true capabilities.

What is your opinion, do you think writing styles matter?
