We’ve discussed the concept of “show not tell” when it comes to career achievement before.
But, this time we’re talking numbers.
Sometimes numbers speak louder than words – especially on a CV where clarity and concision are key. TWEET THIS.
So, use numbers and statistics, where possible, to really make your skills and experience shine. TWEET THIS.
For example, if you were a waiter and shift leader at a busy restaurant you could say:
Provided excellent service at a busy, 50 cover, restaurant and supervised up to 8 waiting staff per shift.
Alternatively, if you work in a role where profitability matters explaining it in money terms will speak even louder than plain old numbers!
Implemented a new stock control system that saved the business over £2,000 per year.
Last, but not least, percentages are a great way to illustrate what you can offer a recruiter in no uncertain terms:
Increased social media following by 200%
Says even more than:
Increased social media followers by 750
See. Easy as 1,2,3!
