Results Are The Only Things That Matter

by - m on 06/15/2012

Whether you have a job or you are looking for a job, you need to get noticed. 


The way to get noticed is to get results.


There are only two types of people that employers want to keep or hire – problem solvers and profit makers. (It goes without saying that they want people who can play nice with others). 


Skills such as “ability to work in a fast-paced environment” or “effective communicator” aren’t the traits to highlight on your resume. They are important skills to have, but not the ones to spotlight.


Here are a few questions that might help you decide what to include.

  • What problems have you solved that affect the company’s bottom line?
  • What work have you produced that affects the company’s bottom line?
  • Does your work get noticed? 
  • Do you get noticed?
When thinking about the answers to these questions remember that this exercise isn’t about what you want.

It’s about convincing an existing or prospective employer that you can solve their problems and improve their bottom line.
