Many applicants are concerned that hiring managers won’t be able to learn of the value they have added throughout their career if they don’t include references. However, your CV itself should speak about your accomplishments and your ability to add value to employers.
But how can you demonstrate this effectively?
When describing your duties for each role, showcase your successes. By showing how you achieved success, you will show recruiters that you’re capable of adding value.
Use numbers and statistics to quantify your achievements, if possible.
Here is an example:
‘Generated a cost saving of $42k by eliminating redundant costs and streamlining processes’.
Note how, in this example, the applicants’ results and achievements provide evidence of his ability to achieve success, almost like a recommendation.
