How much is your Career Worth?

How much is your career worth? For some people, they find their meaning in life through their career.

The value they would put on their career is very high. For others, they don’t even believe they have a career.

If you were to define your career worth, how would you value it?

People I work with tend to be very passionate about their work. They hire me to find their resume stories and value. This morning as I was working with a cloud cost optimization leader, he mentioned creating a playbook.

I said, “Hey, wait, I don’t know this.” He laughed and said, “see you’re doing it again, you are pulling the stories out of me, the things I haven’t thought to put in my resume.”

Since we were working via Zoom, my video technology, he asked if he could share the screen instead of me.

I handed him control and he showed me the playbook. It detailed all the ways he had identified as cost savings options for their cloud optimization processes.

Though we couldn’t include exact numbers, this playbook was designed to show people how adhering to the process saves millions of dollars.

Show your career worth to future employers

As you identify stories in the way this client did, it is critical to include them in your resume.

You may take for granted that it is just part of the job. As you develop critical tools to help your company grow, save money, and promote products, you are defining your career worth.

Don’t leave critical resume stories out of your resume and make sure that you translate that value to LinkedIn. You reach a far wider market with LinkedIn than your resume will ever reach.
