Best Resume Tip: A Simple Trick to Increase Results


Hey Everybody! It’s Andy! Welcome back to my show where I help you build a career you love got a really nice resume tip
today dare I say it’s probably the best piece of advice I can give you in a very
condensed amount of time that I think will have the most impact on how
effective your resume will be and I know a lot of people struggle with with
writing resumes it’s it’s difficult and you want to come up with something
that’s very powerful and one of the things that people struggle with is the
power or lack thereof in their resume bullets so I’ve got this little trick
here whether you are putting a bullet together in your professional work
experience section or you’re putting a bullet together in the career highlight
section one of the questions that you should ask yourself as you’re writing
your bullets is not what did I do because that’s what a lot of people do
right they say what did I do here I ran the customer service department that’s
not a very powerful bullet that’s what you did that’s what we call an
activities based bullet what we really are looking for is an accomplishments
based bullet so the the the neat little trick that you can use is as you write
your bullets ask yourself what happened as a result
of me doing this activity what happened as a result of me doing what I did so if
you run the customer service department what actually happened did customer
service increase did the speed at which you could respond to customer inquiries
decrease there by shrinking the calls the the enquiries of the call center
whatever it might be it that’s ultimately what you want to put in the
bullet so I ran the customer service department raised customer satisfaction
by how much decreased call time by how much increased response time by how much
and so on so what happened as a result of me doing what I did if you have not
answered that question in the bullet the bullet is not done okay hope that tip
