Pi Day is just around the corner! And while we wait in breathless anticipation for the magical day when the calendar date aligns with the proportional relationship between the circumference of a circle and its diameter (yes we’re nerds, why do you ask?), let’s spend a moment talking about numbers.As HR and management studies demonstrate, numerals, decimals, and percentages add weight to an argument presented in words. Numbers make our statements and comparisons easier to visualize. When statements can be pictured, they’re easier to remember. If I told you I saw a large dog out on the sidewalk, you’d yawn. If I said I ran the marketing department for awhile, you’d nod and forget my claim by the end of the conversation. The outcome will change, however, if I told you the dog stood three feet at its shoulder; similarly, you’re sure to remember my workplace history if I told you I ran the marketing department for two years, attracted eight new $50,000 accounts, and generated a 19% increase in campaign ROI.As you look for work, the power of your claims will be your greatest tool. You’ll need to make a case for yourself, and support it with numbers. In doing so, you’ll stand out from competitors and make it difficult for prospective employers to forget you. Here are some things to keep in mind as you quantify your resume.
