  • “Kevin took my very unexciting resume and turned it into a thrilling read. The reason I chose ResumeEdge was because your writers made a personal phone call. That was the key to making my resume look and sound like me.”
  • “My writer is a real pro. She knows the hiring process and has the gift of being able to write crisp bullets that make my career experience look excellent. She communicates well and offered excellent suggestions and tips that really improved my resume and LinkedIn profile.”
  • “I would like to say a big thank you for Emily's help - the quality of work is brilliant and my resume looks much better now, and I'm very impressed by the cover letter as well. Emily understood my needs and did a terrific job consolidating the info I provided in a clear and concise way. Last but not least Emily is responsive (always replied to my emails very quickly even though we live in different time zones), friendly and helpful, and the turnaround time in finishing up the work was impressive. In the future if I need assistance with my resume I would like to get Emily's help again.”
  • “Thank you for your help with my resume, cover letter and LinkedIn Profile. I submitted the resume Sunday, was called in for an interview on Wednesday and received an offer today!”
  • “I really liked that my editor gave me a call, and that she was so personable. After speaking with her, I felt much more comfortable about paying for this service, and I am sure after reading my resume and cover letter that I will have no trouble getting interviews!”
  • “My resume writer was fantastic. If I ever need to use this service again I will be working with her. She took care and highlighted my talents and turned my weakness into assets. I absolutely love her work.”
  • “I loved that that my writer recommended things to me according to my background and field. I was pushed to really dig deep to find eye-catching information. I feel much more confident venturing out into the job market then I did a week ago.”
  • “Great news! I accepted a position as the Director of the Program Management Office with Dignity Health. Thank you so much for all of your guidance. Without your help on my resume and cover letter, I would have never gotten the interview. Because of your fabulous work, they called me within two days of my application!”
  • “My writer took the time to get to know me and was able to provide input in areas I had not thought of. It was tough because I had to let go of some of my old identities to start in a new career, but she took me over the hump and captured who I am--and what I can give.”
  • “You did wonders with my resume. In fact, I am certain my "new and improved" resume (thanks to you) is what landed me my current job. I got a great job with Zurich Financial Services! A Zurich (on-site) Recruiter called me within hours after posting my resume on Monster.com! So, thank you very, very much.”

Focus on accomplishments over duties for a powerful resume

In “writing” there’s a phrase big-time hoohah professionals like myself use all the time when evaluating work – “Show…don’t tell.” This adage is particularly true when putting together your resume.

What it boils down to is the imperative to demonstrate your skills and experiences through action rather than just plastering a list of dates, places, and (ugh) duties, on a page.

They say it’s not what you do it’s how you do it. With that in mind, there is one big secret:

QUANTIFY!

If a resume were an entrée then quantifying would be the spices – it’s the salt and pepper, the cumin, and the oregano. Speaking in “Top Chef” terms, the numbers are what make Tom Collecchio and Padma sit up and say, “I could eat a bowl of this everyday.” They are the flavors that stay in the recruiter’s mind long after the plate is on the table. And I’m getting hungry.

The point is, it is important to quantify the bullet points in your resume. It instantly converts your abstract duties into defined accomplishments:

Which would you be more likely to hire?

Before: “Duties included outreach and media for programs and events while overseeing a large advertising budget.”

After: “Oversaw outreach and media while consistently coming in under budget – saved over $20k annually”

See, you are drawn to the number immediately and (if possible) financial figures are always best.

Truth AND Consequences

Your actions improved your company's portfolio in many ways, so think beyond the immediate. In addition to adding numbers, consider consequences.

Before: “Updated social media and e-blasts on a weekly basis”

After: “Crafted social media and e-blast updates that increased SEO and open rates by over 10%, actively benefiting online presence”

It should be clear which of these is preferable, and it will definitely be clear to those who are looking over your resume.

BUT I'M NOT A NUMBERS PERSON

What if you don’t really work with numbers? Your job requires emphasis on those softer skills and you don’t have a spreadsheet from which to pull scads of data. Be not afraid! You can find quantifiable results in almost any profession.

Horseshoes and hand-grenades

An approximate value works just as well – don’t be concerned if you don’t have the precise number. Use a range - such as...

Before: "Led a group of researchers"

After: "Supervised 10-12 graduate level research students each of whom went on to prestigious Ph.D. programs in chemistry and physics"

How much and how often

The most common way to quantify is to talk about frequency. Think about how many times you accomplish something you perform regularly and write that down.

Before: “Wrote and edited all press releases”

After: “Crafted and reviewed 6-10 press releases per week and evaluated specific media strategies regarding each, resulting in an increase of media attention”

Is it all about the numbers? Not exactly, but they are certainly the spice of life (and s/he who controls the spice...!). So at my instigation, go back over your resume to quantify as much as possible.

We both know that you are so much more than just a few sums... but those digits sure make people sit up and take notice.
