The way to differentiate yourself in your job search is to make your resume value-driven but for most people this is a strange concept. Too many people get stuck trying to look like everyone else.
Blend in. Fit in. Be like everyone else.
How do you make your resume value-driven?
As a professional resume writer, my job is to find out what differentiates you.
How are you different from the next:
- Business Analyst?
- IT Project Manager?
- Manager, Continuous Improvement?
- Operations Manager?
- Quality Business Relationship Manager?
- Plant Manager?
- Vice President of Global Business Development?
What makes you stand out?
- What did you contribute to make the company better?
- What process did you improve?
- How did you grow sales by 45% year-over-year?
- What role did you have in improving talent management?
- What technology initiatives did you drive?
- How did you improve the social media campaign visibility?
- How did you build market share in a down-turned economy?
- How did you bolster name recognition as a recognized competitor in your industry?
- How did you extend leadership programs into emerging markets?
- How did you coach and mentor a large disjointed program team into a cohesive group and increase productivity by 98%?
- How did you reinvigorate and deliver the migration project five months ahead of the contractual schedule?
- How did you create leadership retention?
- How did you champion global diversity?
Is your resume value-driven or run-of-the-mill?
I work with amazing people from all over the world and help them discover the answers to questions like those above. Often it is very hard to see your own value, my job comes from seeing people light up or hearing the joy in their voice when they realize that not only their resume is value-driven but they offer value.
Most people bury their accomplishments or fail to see what makes them special. In our discovery sessions, people start to think of themselves differently and recognize that they bring value to the market place. It is my job to capture that but even before that, it is my job to help them recognize their value.
