Adding numbers on your résumé can help show the hiring manager that you're qualified for the position you're applying for, as well as quantify what you've done and accomplished, rather than just tell me that you're a competent and capable person who I can trust to get the job done with minimal instruction.

Creating a resume where all the content lays out on the page in a way that is easy to read and visually appealing can be challenging. Sometimes in their quest to get all the content on one or two pages, the writer resorts to using design strategies such as a smaller font, tighter margins, or compressed spacing to trim the document. But these strategies are flawed and can make the resume harder to read. Others allow the content to spill over to a second or third page with just a few lines of text on that page. This looks unprofessional and on some level may suggest that you ran out of things to say which is certainly not the message you want to convey. Here are some tips for pruning content to create a tight but easy to read, visually appealing resume.

The job seeker should consider how the dollar amounts and percentages compare to his co-workers' numbers. Pick the number that gives the best impression or use a combination of both.
