In a previous post we talked about the importance of ACHIEVEMENTS. An achievement is similar to an accomplishment, in other words, it is thinking about what you have done in the past and provides value or solutions to your employer.
It’s simple: you did it before, you can do it again, and, maybe, you have the solution for the potential employer’s problems. Maybe you are “the one” they have been looking for. If you are, you may get that opportunity that you want so much.
We shared with you some questions to help you think about what you have done so that you can present your achievements to your potential employers as you put together your resume. We also promised that we would show you how to turn them into achievements.
Let’s look again at each one of those questions.
· Start each sentence with an action verb in past tense. You already did it.
· Quantify your achievements. Employers value numbers.
· Use different verbs. Show your vocabulary.
· Include the result or benefit. Employers will pay you to get or do something.
· Decide which ones are more important for the position that you want. Put those at the top.
Your past achievements will help you to create a new future.
