    That's not a great idea. You'll be able to remove more characters by changing words and being more succinct anyway

    & sign looks a bit strange
    Make some words smaller by using synonyms or do that thing where you go through your PS and anything that isn't backed up by a skill or evidence or something of quality - you can delete
