Resume Tip: When writing about accomplishments, minimizing a loss can be as significant as generating a profit.
The economy is down. Many companies are seeing declining incomes, lower sales and declining performance. It is still possible to be successful. If a company breaks even this year, and all of its competitors have large losses, the company would be considered very successful. Look for aspects of your career that demonstrate how you performed well compared to your competition and include examples of this performance on your resume.
