Quick idea to ‘kickass’ your CV: Include as many statistics as you can.
Numbers get attention. It’s human psychology, it loves numbers. Why?
- they catch the eye, add interest;
- give a sense of “this person measures performance… they are focused on getting great results, fixing things”;
- they build trust, you make yourself stand out.
WHAT TO DO WITH THIS: look at your CV, at your last job – any stats?? You don’t have to make a science of it. But for e.g. if you sped up a process significantly, don’t say “significantly”, that’s weak. Rather say, “by 75%” (it’s a geuss-timate, but that’s okay as long as it’s more or less true.)
