I want to write a brief 2-3 line description of my hobby project in my resume, and have written the following:
Steganography and Image Compression (Hobby project) May 2006 - Jul 2006
This project implements hiding a computer data file in a bitmap image or wave audio, and also retrieves the hidden data file. It also implements compression of a bitmap image using a combination of quantization and run length encoding algorithms.
Somehow I find the "This project implements" rather strange. It also uses "also" twice, which although referring once each to each half of the project, still feels a bit odd. I am not sure if writing a resume in first person ("In this project, I did ..."), and I have read that this is generally discouraged.
Moreover, the "this project" seems redundant, because it is quite clear from the context that it is a project description, but I cannot figure out how to rewrite the above sentences without specifically using the word "project". How should I phrase these in a more "effective" way?
