Whether its in a resume or in a job interview, your ability to describe your achievements is a critical factor for success. Here are 7 tips to help you effectively communicate your great work!
So many people underplay their achievements! Question is, do YOU? If so then you’ve got to do something about it, as opportunity could be passing you by – picked up by the people who can.
Are you polishing your resume for that job you really really want, or even need? Or perhaps you’re preparing for an interview? Maybe updating your LinkedIn profile? Then helping people learn how good you really are will be a major advantage. Successful sales people are really good at this. Let’s learn from them about how to sell ourselves:
I was awarded Employee of the Month in July because of my leadership in helping the customer services department, who were suffering from morale issues and continuously missing targets by 40%. I reorganized them into product teams, placing mentors in each team, which resulted in a complete turnaround – the department exceeded targets by 6% and reduced complaints by 15% within 2 months. My colleagues in this department are now happier than ever and feel on top of their game, and they say that staff attrition has reduced by 18%.
