Crafting a Stellar Resume and Cover Letter: Showcasing Your Worth

Your resume and cover letter are your first impressions on potential employers. Dedicate time and effort to crafting compelling documents that showcase your unique value proposition. Don’t ignore your LinkedIn profile. That acts as a resume in itself, optimise it.


  • Tailor your resume for each job you apply for. Highlight relevant skills and experience that align with the specific requirements of the advertised position. Look for the keywords they are using in the description and if you have projects under the same category, highlight them in the resume.
  • Quantify your achievements: Use numbers and data to demonstrate the impact you’ve made in previous roles. Include metrics such as sales growth percentages, customer acquisition numbers, or revenue generated. Numbers are always said to give a distinction amongst your other competitors. There is science behind the use of numbers as well. When you quantify the results, the trust and credibility increases.
  • Focus on action verbs: Use strong action verbs to describe your past accomplishments and responsibilities. 

If you were in charge of a project or initiative from start to finish, skip “led” and instead try:

  • Administered
  • Arranged
  • Chaired
  • Coordinated
  • Directed
  • Executed
  • Delegated
  • Headed
  • Managed
  • Operated

These are some of the action verbs, I will be sharing more in my new ebook shortly. The launch of which will be done through my newsletter.
