Boost Your Executive Resume Currency

by Kim on March 30, 2017

One of the most important things you can do to boost your resume power, is to first make it a habit to spend five or ten minutes at the end of every day documenting your achievements. When busy executives spend the majority of their time putting out fires, solving problems, maneuvering staff, cutting costs, reorganizing operating strategies or just getting through the day without lingering issues, it’s easy to forget those important accomplishments as they start a new day with a new host of fires to put out.

When one takes the time to write down each accomplishment, it will be easier to justify greater responsibilities or even a higher salary at some point.  It also means that when it comes to creating a new executive resume, either by oneself or through a professional resume writer, that the process will be a little less painless.

Today’s executive resumes are much more informative than those we learned to write back in the day, where most of the information focused primarily on duties. Today’s resumes are now showcases of accomplishments that typically include things like measurable savings, sales growth, operational changes, revenue increases, cost-cutting measures and more, depending on the industry.

While I understand that time is short in this busy world, it’s still important to keep a list or journal of one’s accomplishments. The business environment is changing every day, and it’s essential to keep track of the value you’ve added throughout your career along with new skills you pick up along the way. Even if you don’t need a professional resume now, you will likely need one at some point. By maintaining a record of your successes, it will make the development of a new resume much easier.
