What can you put on your resume to boost your worth? : Great Resumes


There are several things you can put on your resume and discuss in your interviews that can help boost your worth. Actually, they don't help boost your worth. They help prove you're worth more than the average person applying for the job.


Simply put, anything that positions you as a top performer in your job or describes situations in which you performed above the level of your job will help increase your market value. For example, effectively managing people is often a valuable trait. If you have managed more than the typical number •of people for your position and/or have some demonstrable superior skills, show that in your resume. If you have ancillary experience beyond the standard job responsibilities, those should be called out. Employers will often pay more for a person they believe• has proven the ability to achieve critical results, whatever those may be for the job.


Simple advice….


• Check your spelling again. (Spelling mistakes send a bad signal to a potential employer. Some people won't even consider a resume with a typo.)


• Verify your name, phone number and E-mail address. (These are the most likely places for typos because everyone assumes they're correct.)


• If you're sending a resume based on a referral, mention the name of the person who referred you in the first sentence of the cover letter. (Make sure the person who receives your cover letter sees the name of his or her colleague so you're more likely to be considered.)


• Say what you did, not what you were responsible for. (The action sounds better and demonstrates that you've accomplished things.)


• Give results when appropriate - for example…..this project saved the company $50,000 or this report was used as a model for future engagements. (Quantifying what you've done makes it real, believable and more memorable.)


• Don't lie.


• Have something in your resume that is uncommon, yet isn't weird. Something to remember you by. (If you sing in a choir, put that under Interests. It will help employers to distinguish you. They'll refer to you as the singer.)


• Your resume and cover letter are your marketing materials - use them to promote yourself. (If something isn't going to help you get the job, don't include it.)


• Use a permanent E-mail address or a permanent E-mail forwarding address. (This will give your resume a longer shelf life because it will always have up-to-date contact information.)
