Wherever possible on your resume, you'll not only want to list your duties, but specific numbers and figures as well. Employers expect specifics.

Boring Resume = No Job

They want to hire employees that GET RESULTS or SAVE THEM MONEY.

For instance, which of these two statements sound more professional if you were the recruiter reading resumes:

I placed orders to restock merchandise.
OR
I placed $100,000 worth of orders per month & coordinated with 10 separate manufacturers to restock merchandise.

- - - - -

I hired and trained staff.
OR
I hired and trained 100 new staff members per year for 5 years. Also created an employee handbook now used by the company.

I hired and trained staff.
OR
I hired and trained staff using techniques I developed which saved the company $1,000 per year per new employee.

- - - - -

I provided customer service in a fast-paced atmosphere.
OR
I successfully managed 100 customer service calls totaling $50,000 per day gross revenue in a fast-paced atmosphere.

I am proficient with Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
OR
I am proficient with Microsoft Word – including merging lists, mailings, and creating macros. I am proficient with Microsoft Excel – developed a profit/loss spreadsheet which company executives use for up to the minute financials, future spending and budgeting a $10 million project. I am proficient with Microsoft Powerpoint – including creating presentations that are used for corporate stockholders meetings and financial presentations.

The single most important thing I can teach you is to SHOW RESULTS on your resume. If you don't, someone else will show results. They will get the job. You won't!
