Tip of the Month
Since we work with a lot of early-career professionals, the issue of resumes sometimes comes up.
Here's a quick tip to make your resume stand out:  At the end of each job summary, write the word 'Results' and put it in bold and slightly larger font than the rest of the text. Then write one sentence about some action you took that made a measurable difference. Example:  Helped increase sales by 23%.
Employers remember numbers, not text. And if they see that you made an impact at your current job, there's a good chance you'll do the same at future jobs.
Remember, employers care about how you can help them, so it's important to tailor your resume in that fashion. If you use this technique, you'll distinguish yourself from the majority of resumes out there.
