Write a Resume by Focusing on Your Accomplishments, Not Job Duties

Your resume with a cover letter should briefly explain two key points only: your strengths and how they can benefit the company. Your experience statements are not about what you want or what you were "responsible for" in previous positions. It's about the company and its business needs.

Use action words, targeted keywords and support your previous accomplishments with numbers. That's the most fundamental rules to craft a content in your resume. You will learn all about this later in the Wozber Guidebook.

To start a great resume ask yourself a few questions first:

  • How can you benefit the company?
  • What are your unique skills and habits? What sets you apart? What do you do better than others?
  • Are you consistent? Perseverant? Creative? Communicative, leading, or very analytical?
  • What unique problems/challenges did you face? How did you resolve those problems/challenges?
  • Did you save your company money? Did you make your company money?
  • Did you improve any processes, systems, or methods? Did you solve any problems?

Finally, how can you prove any of this with the facts and numbers?
