Being Too Modest

Being Too Modest

You’d be surprised at how many people feel uncomfortable talking about themselves, particularly when it comes to describing work-related successes. However, failing to mention your achievements on your resume is likely to greatly impede your job search. Practice shows that listing professional accomplishments on the resume gives you an instant boost in the eyes of a Hiring Manager, which translates into more chances of landing you the job interview.

Presenting results on your resume will get you noticed.

By presenting your accomplishments, including the specific tasks you performed with the results clearly demonstrates to an employer that you are the right candidate for the position,

If you completed the task then it is not bragging!

Providing your potential employer with achievement-based content on your resume, as opposed to simply list your duties and responsibilities, is not about “bragging” it is about showing examples of how you can meet their needs.  Remember, if you did something well – don’t be afraid to own it!

Having trouble defining your achievements?

If you’re still struggling with recollecting your professional victories, try answering the following questions that our professional resume writing service asks our clients:

  • Have you exceeded sales or performance targets at the workplace? How often?

  • Have you saved your employer money?
  • Have you contributed to business growth in some way? (Expanded the client base? Attracted funding?)
  • Have you successfully completed any challenging projects?
  • Have you received any awards or commendations from your employer? How about praise from customers or clients?
