The importance, worth, usefulness of something
Or the difference in cost and perceived return.
Do you know how you can add value to an employer?
Many of us probably have some ideas but can’t articulate it well, or maybe haven’t thought about it much.
Employers are often evaluating the value that you brought to previous employers AND the potential value you can bring for them if you get hired.
“Will they be able to help us?”
“How will they be able to help us?”
“How much time will it take to get them up to speed?”,
“Are they resourceful, if so how do I know this?”
“Will they fit in well with how we operate?”
“What have they accomplished before to help prove their case?”
“What shows me that I’m making the right decision?”
The better you’re able to demonstrate this in a resume, in your work examples, in how others in your network perceive you, in your interviews, etc. I think the more opportunities you will have presented.
Don’t underestimate your value, but know what it is and how to communicate it effectively.
