CV by personality: Simple
No 1 tip to make a simple resume into something that is functional and effective – highlight your performance. The key is to not make hiring managers hunt for your achievements; instead, pull out a standalone summary of what you’ve accomplished. In the context of resume writing, this is where you want to tailor a mix of awards and accomplishments to a job you’re aiming for. If you were promoted, then why? If you solved a problem in the company, how did you do it? Were successful in leading a high-stakes project? Then how?
If you’re having trouble populating this section, we suggest looking at resume samples online or your past performance reviews for ideas. What have your bosses and co-workers said to you that you do better than anyone else? Differentiate this section from the summary at the top by focusing on quantifiable evidence. Think concrete numbers and percentage points.
