Everyone is unique, but on a resume it can be a challenge to stand out in the eyes of a recruiter or hiring manager. Emphasize what know makes you most valuable to an organization. It’s not about your point-of-view, it’s knowing what the recruiter and hiring manager are looking for. Remember, they’re searching for someone who represents the best solution to their business problem.

Always provide quantifiable results wherever possible in your job experience. Be sure to give personal references who can speak specifically to those results. Lastly, be prepared to discuss your plans on how you can translate those numbers into even better results for the next organization that is smart enough to hire you.

Sound complicated? It’s not, just take a few tips from this informative, “Defining Your Unique Selling Points” Video Advice from Monster UK.
