Office Hours #1: Resume Writing with Judy Park [35:27]
This question was posed by a question during one of our most recent "CareerVillage Office Hours" sessions. During Office Hours sessions, we invite students to pose questions related to a specific topic. In this case, the topic was resume writing. If you answer this question, we will reach out to the students who attended this office hours session to inform them of your response, and all students on CareerVillage will benefit. If you would be interested in hosting an office hours session on a particular topic, please reach out to our staff!

[Responsibility] + [problem I helped solve]
[Responsibility] + [process I helped improve]
[What I did] + [the benefit to my boss or company]
Otherwise, if you know it helped increase x or y, by all means, say it! :) While you may not have the number, you know the work had an impact.
If not, provide an estimate, but use a lower number with a + after it. For example, if I knew I supported around 10 to 15 events or activities, I might say "I supported 10+ events". That's an honest answer and is erring on the lower side so I don't accidentally exaggerate.
