It’s a competitive job market, particularly post-COVID, so many recruiters spend only seconds screening a resume. If we don’t see a match quickly, we must move on to the next application.

If you want your resume to stand out, the scope and scale of your work needs to be shown. Don’t miss out on opportunities by neglecting to include crucial details!

Most jobseekers list job title and responsibilities, and perhaps key accomplishments on their resume. But without seeing the scope and scale of your work, recruiters can’t match you with the right opportunities.

For example, we sometimes see resumes that are virtually identical, but represent dissimilar backgrounds. Inventory Analysts have the same basic duties and responsibilities whether they work for a retailer or a manufacturer. But the type of data they analyze and the tools they use may be vastly different.

If you’re a Distribution Centre Manager, your resume must include the size of both the team and the facility. If you’re a Transportation Manager, make sure your resume clearly shows if you’re managing a fleet or 3PL partners.


The details of the work you do are crucial!  Don’t forget to include the vital details on your resume!
