A Resume Tip from Dodie T
Quantify your experiences as much as possible. Listing your tasks and responsibilities may seem like a good place to start, but that list doesn’t tell employers why they should hire you over someone else. Use numbers, percentages, and dollar amounts – especially for any results you have produced – to demonstrate your effectiveness to a potential employer.
