In a competitive jobs market, even the most qualified and experienced candidates can fail to secure the right positions. Today, your resume needs to do more than simply recount the places you have worked. You need to consider what makes you special and find your ‘wow’ factor.
What makes you the best person for the job? Are you faster? More diligent? Whatever the answer, find the confidence to state it plainly. Employers are looking for candidates who understand their own strengths and the value they bring to a business.
In addition, include details on the results and outcomes of your input. If your diligence allowed you to streamline processes around an IT department, how much money was saved? When writing a resume, you are selling yourself as an important asset to a business. So focus your attention on the return an employer could see from investing in your skills and talents.
