How Did You Make a Difference?

In writing a resume, it is important to show how you are qualified.  In recent posts, I’ve talked about reviewing job postings and speaking to the employers’ needs.  At the same time, a good resume will show what makes you better than other qualified candidates.  To do that, you need to include relevant achievements and success stories. How do you define these elements?  My simple method is to think about what you’ve done that goes beyond the normal job duties and has a positive impact on the company.

Here are some verbs that might help you identify achievements and tell your success stories:

Increased

Enhanced

Achieved

Reduced

Improved

Produced

Generated

Developed

Completed

Established

Reorganized

Designed

Ranked

Represented

Mentored
