Interview suggestion: Mention money/figures/percentage increases in your last job at next interview/

Companies are and always will be concerned about money and the financial value in hiring you over someone else because of the skills/experience you bring that they feel is valuable to their company. In other words, the return on investment (ROI) is higher with you then another potential candidate.

So as you think about your achievements and write them down on your resume, think about what dollar value or percentage increases you have achieved*

*(if due to company confidentiality you are legally not allowed to, then under no circumstances should you mention dollar value/percentage increases – please refer to your current/previous employer for information regarding this).

You may wish to mention achievements such as that you reduced costs by 15% because your employer implemented your suggestions, or that you undertook a promotional campaign that brought in more than $50,000 in revenue, etc.
