    What do you do when you are in a job for which there is no way to use quantitative stats?

    I was a front-line interpreter for a historic site. There’s no way that I could quantify anything I did. I can’t say that I saw x number of people, or that I talked to folks for x minutes.

    • Thanks for your question! I am not familiar with interpreter resumes, but I have never met a profession that cannot be quantified. Best thing to do is hire a resume writer who has worked in transcription to customize the approach for you. They might be more in tune with the wording. Hope this helps and thanks again for your question.

    can you provide another example of what word to use at the top, instead of summary? Just writing what you want seems a little too vague.

    • Andrea — Thanks so much for your question. We so appreciate it! Writing the specific position you want is as specific as you can get and we don’t feel would be considered vague. It tells the reader what you want. That’s it. We recommend that you don’t complicate it. Hope this helps! Thanks!

      • Hello,
        Thanks so much for this post! I think crafting your resume with quantitative information about your previous positions is essential. However, for those who do not have much prior experience it may be well worth it to get further education. If you wonder why get an mba, consider how the things you learn can translate into a lucrative career! Thanks again for the informative tips!
