In this highly competitive world, merely stating your merits and achievements is not enough. You should support whatever you write with facts and figures. For example, merely writing that you won the Chairman’s award for the best performance in your last office isn’t enough. State why you won and do that with numbers. For example, you can write, “During my last stint as a senior manager, I led the team to organize a charity event, where we were supported by five sponsors. During the event, the representatives of the sponsors interacted with the Chairman of the company and they further invested in other projects. Their involvement helped to increase the company’s revenue by 12 per cent as compared to last year. For this, I was given the Chairman’s award for best performance.” This is a perfect example of employing the story-telling method and then supporting it with facts and figures. This makes the reader take a keen interest in the candidate.
