When writing your resume — Don’t solely put action phrases that are all too commonly used in resumes: Increased sales, managed territory, managed budget, or saved money.
Instead, use dates, stats, and $$$ to quantify and prove your past successes:
07/17/2012 – write actual dates next to great accomplishments in past positions
13% – note % that you increased sales for the company.
5 counties – list # of states or counties you covered in your territory.
$25,000 budget – state the $ amount of the budget you managed.
$20,000 – state the $ amount of money you saved for the company.
