I could have titled this post 8 Great Tips to Prove Your Value to Your Employer
Before you non-job-seekers cut out me, this post very accurately could have been titled 8 Great Tips to Prove Your Value to Your Employer. So, stay tuned.
Let’s be honest. How many times do we need to remind our own employers of our awesomeness? I don't know about you, but I seem to need to remind my guy every day because he can't remember a thing.
What’s the problem?
Think about the problem. You're sending out your resume and employers aren’t calling you back. Ouch. [I’ve already explained why that is in How to Get Your Resume Noticed in 5 Seconds Guaranteed.]
Although recruiters are a funky bunch and review those resumes quickly, they do notice an impact player when they see one. So, how do we get you to SHOW you’re that impact player?
First, you need a great layout…
I’ve shot other videos on showing your fabulousness on your resume. (C’mon people. I can’t show you everything in one 10-minute video!)
It’ll be extremely helpful if you check out these little beauties so you know the best layout and so forth. Of course, there are FREE Templates and other things that will make you love me forever:
Second, I’ll give you TWO FREE courses if you can stump me…
I’m really confident I can improve your resume if you follow this video and spend a few moments considering these tips. Want to know how confident?
I will give you my Build Your Ultimate Professional Resume Course & Workshop plus any additional online training course you find on the milewalk Academy site—FOR FREE—if you can stump me. Details later.
C’mon buddy. Where are my 8 Tips?
Think about what employers care about. Who makes an impact in their organization? People who these things…
But, Andy, I don’t do those activities at work…
Sure you don’t. If you’re thinking there’s no way I can come up with something like this…
Are you a hostess? How many people do you care for and seat and service each night? Over the course of the year?
Are you a mail carrier? How many houses do you deliver the mail to? How many pounds of mail? How many square miles do you cover every single day, year in and year out?
Are you a mechanic? How many cars have you fixed within the last year?
Are you a project manager? What's the size of the project budget? Did you complete it on time? How many people did you manage? How many people did you coach? How many people did you mentor?
We could go all day, but I have a time limit and word count limit and your attention span limit.
Hey, you mentioned a contest or something…
Think about what I said. If you can’t figure out a way to improve your resume, head to the comments section (wherever you’re seeing this) and say…
“Hey, Andy, I’m a [insert title here/perhaps type of company too] and I do [insert what you do] and I can’t figure out how to quantity or show impact. What should I do?”
Tell me I don’t love you.
