Abbreviations

Recommended Posts

For the most part I tried not to but for some things I did if it was a common abbreviation like b/w, w/, and intl. Sometimes I googled a word to see if it had a common abbreviation that I couldn't think of. Still got a couple interviews!

I abbreviated like crazy because I tend towards wordiness and as you said, there was no way for me to fit all the description I wanted for most of my ABS items otherwise. The titles also have character limits, so I had to use abbreviations there too. I pretty much always used the common shorthand such as w/ or b/w. 

 

Like MathtoMed suggested, I would give each description to someone else (usually my parents, because I figured younger people are more comfortable with random abbreviations and shorthand) and see if they still understood what I was saying. If they highlighted an abbreviation as being incomprehensible, I would go back and try something else.
