Show your value on a Resume

Updated: Oct 18, 2019


Recruiters have a lot of resumes to search by every day. They will not spend more than 7 seconds on your resume, so if you give them the information needed to make a quick decision about your credentials, you will have the advantage over other applicants.


Demonstrate your value


Hiring managers scan your resume looking for evidence about what type of worker you are. If you show that you consistently produced positive results for previous companies, you will be seen as a fit candidate. The key is to highlight your successes and provide proof of your potential value.


But the question is: How to write about my realizations on a resume? A good starting point for considering your accomplishments is Problem - Action - Results.


What types of challenges did you handle? What steps did you take to overcome the problems? What was the result of your efforts, and how did your performance benefit the company? Write down a list of your achievements and include the most notable ones in your resume. Examples:


  • “Sustained a 97% satisfaction rating over a 24-month period as a customer care representative”

  • “Directed 25 events per year, including complex public events with more than 20,000 attendees”

  • “Transcended partner development sign-on goals by 20% in Q1 2019”
