amples of your “strong communication skills” in action. They want to see how you’ve used them to solve a problem; be that improving customer service, increasing morale, growing market share, etc.
That’s why every professional resume writer will tell you that achievement-based resumes are the best way to generate calls. Resumes that focus on your accomplishments—times that you’ve made money, saved money, saved time, etc. —are what inspire employers to schedule an interview.
Most resume writers use some form of the CAR approach with their clients. That’s Challenge, Action, Result.
Begin by thinking about your last few positions. How were things when you joined the company? What problems came up during your tenure? What obstacle were in your path?
If there are no surprises when you come on board, something always comes up along the way. You may have run into outdated systems, low morale, poor customer service, declining sales, etc. These are your challenges.
Then move on to the actions. What did you do to make things better or solve a problem or generate revenue? Maybe you selected new software and migrated the data with no down time. Perhaps, you resolved customer service issues by retraining the staff. These are your actions.
Discerning your actions when you were part of a team takes a little more thought. You need to acknowledge the team’s success. But, you also need to highlight what you brought to the project that helped the team succeed.
Finally, you’re ready to talk about the results. Try to quantify the results whenever possible with dollars, percentages, etc. Even if you’re not in a position that generated income you’ve probably made a significant difference in other ways. For example, maybe you redesigned and/or automated the expense-report process so that instead of taking 5 days a month it now takes only 2. That’s worth mentioning.
Go through this process for each of your last few jobs. Come up with 3 to 5 achievements so you’ll have a few choices when writing your resume. Don’t go back more than 10 to 15 years.
Remember, things that are part of your job are not challenges. If you’re a manager, managing the team is not an accomplishment unless there are special circumstances. For example, if you came in during high turnover or leadership changes and you still were able to lead your team to success. That’s an accomplishment. If you are overseeing the team’s daily activities, that’s not.
Writing a resume isn’t easy. One of the most important things to remember is that your resume should be a marketing tool, designed to sell you to a potential employer. Not a record of your past employment.
Use the CAR approach to uncover your accomplishments. Take your time. Dig deep. Doing this will take a lot more time, but the results will be worth it.

and outdid each other in promising to stop it through tax policies and renegotiating trade agreements.
A chief executive who recently outsourced his customer call center to the Philippines and his IT help desk to India says the main reason was the much higher efficiency of those service providers - resulting in huge savings for his customers and his shareholders.
Lower wages were not the motivating factor. Anyone who outsources abroad because of lower wages is being short-sighted, he says. Rather, for him, it was the performance of the provider on quality metrics like percentage of calls answered within 30 seconds - much higher than the in-house operation at the company.
When he visited the call center in the Philippines, this manager found that employees invariably had a college education, and were motivated in their work because the service provider offered them a career path based on their performance. By contrast, in the U.S., call centers are seen as a dead-end job and plagued by high turnover that is very costly.
Why don't American companies offer the same efficiency at a call center? Well, this chief executive suggests, tax and regulatory policies in the U.S. can make it difficult for entrepreneurs to start up businesses. Also, it's hard to find people qualified and willing to do this kind of work.
By the way, this American company didn't get any tax breaks for shipping these jobs overseas. The savings were operational, and the decision was a simple business decision - the company's customers and shareholders, and so ultimately its employees, benefited from higher quality at lower cost.
This is the kind of competition that will force American companies and American workers to be better. Read on here.
