Job Applications: Quick Tip #9

Quick Tip #9 Use numbers

With a sea of letters, numbers jump off the page! Instead of writing, “Released many products for my company”, take the time to quantify how many products you released so that your resume reads “Released 300 products in 2 years to fulfill client’s requests.”  This simple change in wording shows the hiring manager you have verifiable accomplishments and have the ability to get projects finished. By quantifying your accomplishments it demonstrates the value you can add to a team, which allows you to have a better position in negotiating title or salary at your new company.
