The Importance of Highlighting Outcomes in Your Résumé

As you present your skills and abilities in a résumé, be sure to highlight outcomes. The reader of your résumé will want to know the results of your work, not merely read a description of it.This will give hiring managers confidence that you can have the impact that they and their organizations desire. Including specific, measurable details will more clearly demonstrate your potential for impact. The authors offer examples of commonly used résumé phrases that paint an incomplete picture of a candidate’s capability, contrasted with examples that focus on outcomes.
