Use Numbers To Quantify Your Value During The Interview

May 20, 2013

When interviewing candidates for jobs, employers are interested in two things, according to HR professional and freelance writer Deborah S. Hildebrand: A) Can you do the job? and B) If you can do the job for their organization?

Thus, aside from demonstrating that you have all the requisite talents outlined in the job posting, such as the ability to communicate and required technical skills, candidates should consider using numbers to quantify their value.

In another Hildebrand post, “Use Numbers to Quantify Your Work Experience and Get a Job,” she explains the importance of adding numbers to your resume. Quantifying adds a dimension that helps employers visualize your real value.

According to this CBS Money Watch post, here are a few suggestions on how to “quantify” your resume:

  • Consider the projects you’ve worked on that contributed to the bottom line. For example, Engineers can explain how he or she designed a new app the company took to market or developed a new program to help sales increase revenue.
  • Share examples of when you performed outside the scope of your job. Talk about how you reduce costs by taking on greater responsibilities, or even simply taking on responsibilities of an absent colleague.
  • Talk about what you did to contribute to cost containment. Explain how you used new technology or tools to reduce expenses or improve employee productivity.

The fact is that quantifying this information helps potential employers gain a better understanding of your contributions. For more tips on interviewing and insight into finding the right career opportunity for you, browse our website or contact us.
