You do that throughout the job-application process, and the first step is to develop a value-infused résumé. To start, you need to grasp two important concepts. The first is that value is in the eye of the beholder. And that “eye” is the eyes of those making the hiring decisions. They have defined what is of value to them and will base their choice on their estimation of who best provides the value they seek. As the stakes have risen, decision makers can no longer afford to simply hire friends and relatives, without giving consideration for the comparative value of other candidates.

You just have to put yourself in the company’s shoes. Organizations are looking to exchange their resources for your contribution—where they have a sense of what they need, in what quantity they need it, and how much they are willing to pay. Your success in landing the job depends on your ability to find out what it is that they value, and deliver it to them in your initial application for the position. At this point, workshop participants begin to get it, but they do not have enough tools to apply the concept to their résumés.

Hiring managers prefer people who can make a difference to their bottom line. Your ability to demonstrate that potential by drawing parallels between your previous experiences and an employer’s needs is crucial in getting hired and remaining employed. The ability to demonstrate value creation, thus, is a fundamental requirement of the new job market. It is as simple as putting yourself in the shoes of the employer. In our workshops, we do this by asking the question: Whom do you hire? We answer it by listing two sets of credentials side by side and comparing them to the job specifications from the employer.
