Stand out by shouting about your career achievements

I get it, it's deeply uncomfortable to go around shouting about your achievments.

It's just not the done thing in our culture.

My smart, successful clients struggle to tell me about their achievements so that I can add them to their CV. They tell me things like:

'My job is to make my clients look good' and 'Once I've done things I tend to forget about them'

Thankfully I'm not put off by this and dig deep to find out their biggest career success so that we can shout about them to potential employers.

It's so important but so difficult to get out as we are conditioned not to 'show off'. Your CV is no place for modesty though and it's really important to highlight your achievements and not just list your responsibilities.
