Let's pretend that you are an employer looking over some prospective job applications. One CV states that the candidate wrote regular press releases in their role. The second CV states that this candidate completed 20 press releases per month hitting their deadlines by 100%. Which CV would impress you more?
It is easy to see why adding relevant numbers to your CV can carry more weight. You can use numbers to better emphasise your accomplishments and it will also help your prospective new employer to quantify your achievements. Adding numbers to your CV makes it far more memorable and more likely to get through to the interview pile rather than getting dumped in the reject bin.
Numbers are a powerful tool to use on your CV and will gain you the attention you deserve from prospective employers. StandOut CV have produced a very useful infographic highlighting 14 important numbers for your CV that you should consider including.
