简历中Bullet Points如何写得简洁有力?

首页

说到写简历,大家可能都有类似的苦恼,一个Bullet Point,想说很多内容,但是翻来覆去,要么太冗余,要么感觉Impact不够,总是找不到一个特别好的说法。也有小伙伴和我们反应,自己经历太平凡,没什么可写的。我们今天就来给大家解决烦恼~~~

Bullet Point需要用一个陈述性语句,用事实说话,说清楚自己做了什么,有什么贡献和成就。Bullet Point一般保持在2行以内,一定不能超过3行,太长的句子句法负责会难以理解。

一般来说,Bullet Point会用一个Active的动词开头,总结出这个Bullet的结果。什么是Active的动词呢,一般来说就是有结果导向的,比如:

领导:Coordinate, Execute, Organize…

规划:Create, Develop, Initiate…

提高效率:Improve, Enhance, Achieve…

更多实用动词列表,可以参考Offer帮精心准备的Verb List

 

神奇公式

接下来就是说明具体的细节了,既然要用事实说话,与其加入很多华丽的形容词,比如自己conducted “intensive” research on…, 或者improved the efficiency “significantly”, 不如用量化或者细节,把这些结果说具体。

在这里,我们给大家提供一个Google HR Senior VP总结出来的Bullet Point公式,这位仁兄自己就看过超过20000份简历,应该是相当权威了。

基本公式:

Accomplished [X] as measured by [Y] by doing [Z]

举个例子:

一般写法:

Studied financial performance of companies and made investment recommendations

使用公式之后的高级写法:

Improved portfolio performance by 12% ($1.2M) over one year by refining cost of capital calculations for information-poor markets and re-weighting portfolio based on resulting valuations

是不是感受很不一样?上面的写法很平淡,没有什么特点,而下面的具体贡献和方法就会看着很牛X,谁不想招个能把Portfolio增加1.2M的人呢?

 

更多例子

当然,具体放多少细节和数字,取决于你想Highlight内容的多少和简历篇幅的限制,今天我们先主要讲一下这个公式的用法,再给大家多举几个例子,抛砖引玉一下:

1. 如果你在一个Student Organization里面管理Finance:

事实:Managed club budget

进阶写法:Managed $31,000 Spring 2014 budget and invested idle funds in appropriate high-yielding capital notes

高级写法:Managed $31,000 Spring 2014 budget and invested $10,000 in idle funds in appropriate high-yielding capital notes returning 5% over the year

2. 参加了一个Leadership Program:

事实:Member of Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT)

进阶写法:Selected as one of 230 for this 18-month professional development program for high-achieving diverse talent

高级写法:Selected as one of 230 participants nationwide for this 18-month professional development program for high-achieving diverse talent based on leadership potential, ability to contribute to this MLT cohort, and academic success

3. 如果通过谈判压低了供应商的价格

事实:Responsible for negotiating service contracts with XYZ

进阶写法:Negotiated 30% ($500k) reduction in costs with XYZ to perform post-delivery support

高级写法:Negotiated 30% ($500k) reduction in costs with XYZ to perform post-delivery support by designing and using results from an online auction of multiple vendors 

4. 如果你为公司研究市场营销策略

事实:Studied the branding and marketing strategies of XYZ. Analyzed the pricing strategies of XYZ in comparison to competitors

进阶写法:Led a 10-member team to develop and implement global advertising strategy for $X million XYZ brand

高级写法:Led a cross-functional 10-member team to develop and implement global advertising strategy for $X million XYZ brand, resulting in 25-point increase in brand recall, 12% improvement in net promoter score, and contributing to 18% year-over-year sales improvement ($XM)

5. 如果你想Highlight某些方面的Skill

事实: Excellent customer service skills. Friendly and positive attitude

高级写法:Excellent customer service skills and positive attitude as demonstrated by receiving employee of the month in four consecutive months in 2014

这就是我们给大家准备的几个例子,虽然做的事情比较基础,但通过量化和细节的支持,就显得很有牌面。大家也可以仔仔细细地回忆一下经历,找一找与众不同,或者值得一提的地方。
