Leaving out articles

Joel Spolsky has written an article about how does his company deal with resumes. One of the points is the quality of the language in resumes.

That said, we try to be considerate of non-native speakers who are nonetheless excellent communicators: leaving out articles in that charming Eastern European way, or starting every paragraph with “So” in charming Pacific Northwestian way, is not a showstopper.

That’s a relief. However, the rest of the article made me take yet another look at my CV.
