Thank you, Terry, for your excellent advice to develop key accomplishment statements for my resume. I knew that I needed to do it, but quantifying the impact of what I thought of as “soft skills” seemed like a daunting task, so I put it off. When I finally did it, the results were both positive and immediate! I was presented with an opportunity for a new job in a different department within my current organization. The final decision-makers only knew me in my current role, and I’m sure it was difficult for them to look past my current job title. However, within 30 minutes of handing my newly-refurbished resume to a key player, the department head requested to meet with me. With my well-defined accomplishments and impact statements, he could clearly see how my skills would add value to his team – and how, in the new role, I would be able to help the company both make money and save money while our industry recovers from a downturn. I got the job! Your advice was on-point, and your encouragement was invaluable.
