I'm writing my resume and don't want to repeat same word multiple times in a small paragraph of profile section. Currently my write up is below:

With 7 years’ experience in the software implementation with strong background in health care industry, I’ve written code, automate things and tested them with flexible and analytical skills with a keen eye for details. After working in India and the UK I believe a true diversified culture with strong work ethics can fulfill business requirement in more balanced way and I’m in a search for the same. Besides my professional career I like to keep myself busy with some practice design and development work and few of them are available at my portfolio on GitHub.

Any suggestions on modifying the highlighted areas?

I'm not fond of solid background or solid foundation and I believe strong work ethics sounds better.

  • You could use a thesaurus to find suitable synonyms. – Mick Nov 20 '17 at 17:31
  • @Mick - That was my first thought, too, but most synonyms for "strong" (like forceful, powerful, indestructible, ardent, fierce, and intense) don't work very well in this context. – J.R. Nov 20 '17 at 17:44
  • A firm background? An excelent backgroung? – SovereignSun Nov 20 '17 at 17:59

    A solid background, perhaps, and positive work ethics? – Mick Nov 20 '17 at 18:26

    What @Mick said. See this NGram for relative prevalence of strong, solid, excellent, firm in OP's context (but actually the last of those is so unlikely it doesn't even appear on the chart! :) – FumbleFingers Nov 20 '17 at 18:59

With 7 years’ experience in the software implementation with most of my experience being in in the health care industry, I’ve written code, automated things and tested them with flexible and analytical skills with a keen eye for details. After having worked in India and the UK I believe a true diversified culture with a strong work ethic can fulfill business requirement in more balanced way and I’m looking for these qualities in turn. Besides my professional career I like to keep myself busy with some practice design and development work and few of them are available at my portfolio on GitHub.

This is how I would state that paragraph. It doesn't repeat too many things and has a bit more complicated sentence structure.

    Thanks mate. I'm glad that you made correction quite a few areas of my write up and enhanced the same. Only the with is getting repeated here. But I guess that's not bad English. What you do say? – Anup Nov 21 '17 at 5:08
  • @Anup No not at all! – MattCom Nov 21 '17 at 14:53

    How about With 7 years’ experience in the software implementation with most of it being in the healthcare industry, I’ve written code, automated things and tested them with flexible and analytical skills with a keen eye for details. just omitted multiple uses of experience. – Anup Nov 21 '17 at 19:32
  • That looks good. – MattCom Nov 21 '17 at 19:34
