JOB SEARCH TIP: You CAN measure your successes—four ways.

15 Aug


I’ve been asked many times by job seekers how they can measure certain aspects of their job. This is important, because the degree to which we can measure things can help prospective employers better understand what we’ve done and how we might contribute in their workplace.

My mentor Dr. Clifton said there are four ways you can measure aspects of any job:

  1. Can you COUNT it?
  2. Can you RANK it?
  3. Can you RATE it?
  4. Did you ACHIEVE it?

For most tasks you perform in a work setting you can use one of the four ways illustrated above to provide some measurement to your work. You can use insights from this to enhance your resume, and can also quote these results in interviews.

As has been said: “what you count, counts”. Measure your successes and then go tell your story.

The posts for the next couple weeks are inspired by a man who inspired me, Donald O. Clifton.
