Celebrate You!

If I had a nickel for every time I saw a résumé that read like a job description...well, let's just say I'd be taking a lot more vacations. "Maintained ___," "served as ___," "responsible for ___." What a snooze!!
 

It's easy to downplay our accomplishments, especially when they seem so ordinary to us. We're just doing our jobs. We're not doing anything exceptional...right?? WRONG!!
 

You didn't just answer calls. You were the first point of contact for 120 customers daily; ensuring their first experience with the company was a positive one!
 

You're not just an experienced manager. You led your team to the highest sales numbers in 5 years. You reduced turnover by 35% by implementing an employee recognition program to celebrate your team's successes.
 

Basically, you rock.
 

You just need to remind yourself of that. If you're lacking the confidence to remind yourself of that, you need a team of people who care to help you remember. Call your best friend, your old work best friend, your mom, your partner, heck - call your vocational counselor! We will help you pull accomplishments out of your work history, and help you remember all of the amazing things you've achieved.
 

Not only will your stellar accomplishments make you feel like a million bucks, but if you can turn your résumé from a snooze-fest job description to a rockin' directory of your proudest work successes, you'll be adding exciting new victories to the old résumé in no time (and maybe even making a new work best friend).
 

Don't be blind to what you've accomplished because it was "just part of the job." CELEBRATE your successes, celebrate yourself!
