Be specific

In your resume, you must include how you impacted the company or organisation you worked for.  

It is important because most people just describe their past jobs and what is more important is to demonstrate how you contributed to that job.

Throw around numbers

It's very important to quantify your achievement whenever possible

For example, if you saved the company $10,000, include that amount instead of saying, 'I was an extraordinary employee.' Including something tangible, concrete, and quantifiable really helps in attracting big MNC who search for extraordinary talents. 

Use action verbs

Use action verbs like instead of saying 'I made a new program that increased conversion rate,' you should say 'Initiated a new program that increased conversation rate by 20%.

In an interview, the interviewer might ask about any of that.

Get to the results
