ONE THING NEEDFUL ON EVERY JOB SEEKER’S RESUME.
Every Hiring Manager is interested in your past achievement, Project, and work. What have you done in the past, what have you accomplished in the past that will enable you to sell yourself terrifically to the hiring team. This is what I called performance review of yourself: to present/sell yourself to get the desire job and mind you, you are to present yourself at that interview table vigorously with full-bridge energy at their faces ,it’s a war you must win within a speck of time.
For those who think they don’t have past achievement since they are fresh graduate let me jog your memory: there has been a time when you help your mum solve the problem of getting a recipe for a particular food. You got the recipe together and came about the place to buy at lowest cost and you mobilize and motivate your young ones to set for the meal and finally you got a good tasty meal and your mum says excellent, wao that’s performance review.an HR job seeker can use(how you motivate your team sibling).Marketing&Procurement(how you shop and procure the items from the producer or retailer).Accounting can sight he was able to keep record and prices of the recipe and know the cost prices and selling prices.
Am doing this just to allay your fear that you actually have a past achievement and this is how you show the hiring manager the ability to think and apply whatever you’ve experience.We are not talking about the number of experiences or the the years but out of the experiences what have you achieved.
Put it this way,THE PROBLEM/SITUATION,THE STRATEGY,THE METRIC RESULTS.
Problem will involve the problem you faced at that time.
Strategy;the strategy you employ with your team participation and roles of strategy played
Result:Not just any result,give us the result in metric/value.For instance; after the problem is solved we are able to reduce the time usually consume from 12hours to 5hours or we are able to increase profit from 25% to 65%.This is when you show what you’ve got to the hiring team or the hiring manager which must not be missing on your resume.
