5 Ways To Add Metrics To Your Resume For Quantifiable Success

 

When writing a resume, you can probably do a good job of explaining your day-to-day responsibilities without too much guidance. But simply listing your daily tasks won’t catch the eye of the best employers.

As your seniority grows, so should your ability to demonstrate how you’ve made an impact in past roles.

Metrics are a powerful way for you to do this. Using facts and figures, you can quantify your accomplishments and provide real evidence that will impress future employers.

With that in mind, here are five ways you can add metrics to your resume for quantifiable success.

 

1. Show percentage increases/decreases

Percentages can be an excellent way to highlight improvement or growth in your previous positions and there are several ways you can use these. You can show how you’ve helped to increase efficiency or revenue, or how you’ve led to a decrease in complaints or dissatisfaction.

For example, if your customer service led to a 30% increase in positive online reviews or you implemented a new employee wellness scheme that reduced staff turnover by 25%.

 

You can include examples like these when outlining your daily responsibilities and achievements in your employment history.

If you’ve got any really impressive percentages, you might even wish to include these in your personal profile to grab the recruiter’s attention right away. Perhaps you’re a marketing professional who grew Instagram engagement by 56% in six months, that’s worth shouting about early on.

2. Share money generated or saved

In business, money talks and if you are able to make or save an impressive amount of cash, potential employers will want you on board.

 

If relevant, mention the amount of money you were able to generate or that you helped to save your previous employers. These metrics lend themselves nicely to roles like sales, HR, and project management, as well as most management positions.

But if you’ve introduced cost-cutting measures, driven sales, or increased the efficiency of resource allocation in any role, you should showcase these numbers.

Give the exact amount where possible, for example, if you introduced a new automated tool that resulted in a 20,000 saving over 12 months. Again, you can include these in your employment history and personal profile if relevant.

Recruiters expect to see real achievements and measurable results on your resume.

3. Highlight time saved and deadlines exceeded

Being able to save time and increase efficiency is good for business, as is meeting and exceeding deadlines. That is why you should showcase your ability to meet deadlines or complete projects ahead of schedule.

 

You might wish to highlight how you streamlined tasks or processes and how much time was saved as a result. Give days or hours if possible, you could also give this as a percentage or monetary value depending on the result.

An example of this might be ‘completed a project two weeks before the deadline, saving the company 5,000 in labor and receiving excellent feedback from the clients’.

4. Prove your impact on targets or KPIs

Throughout your career, you’ll be working towards different targets and you’ll often be given key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure your success.

So, if your work has directly impacted KPIs or you’ve achieved and exceeded targets for your organization, be sure to include these metrics.

This might be increasing website traffic, hitting sales targets, or improving employee retention rates. Whatever the case, make sure to quantify the exact impact of your contributions as best you can, such as ‘increased social media followers by 10,000 in three months, exceeding targets by 30%’.

These metrics can be used to show your achievements in past roles and therefore, are usually best placed within your employment section. That being said, if you achieved anything particularly impressive during your time in education and exceeded your own targets, these may also be relevant.

For example, ‘graduated in the 95th percentile with a GPA of 4.0, 0.6 points higher than predicted’.

 

5. Provide people-related metrics

Lastly, people can make or break a business and as you take on more senior roles, it’s likely you’ll be responsible for a larger number of people, whether employees or customers.

Giving examples of how many people you’ve managed or teams you’ve overseen speaks well to your leadership skills, and being able to handle large accounts or projects is also important. Therefore, be as detailed as you can with your people-related metrics.

 

Whether you’ve managed a portfolio of 50+ clients or you headed up a team of 20, incorporating these metrics into your resume can grab the recruiter’s attention.

 

No matter your job title or industry, there will always be some impressive metrics you can include to boost your resume. So, following the advice above, make sure to quantify your achievements whenever possible and provide solid evidence of your skills. That way, you can demonstrate your value to future employers.
