Highlighting your most relevant experiences in a resume and cover letter is logical, yet it's equally essential to genuinely depict your profile. By incorporating distinctive facets from your archetype, you can effectively convey your profile and fit, setting yourself apart from the sea of standardised and impersonal applications.

As the Creative Achiever archetype you value achievement, delivering results and being decisive. You tend to be assertive, driven and determined. Complementing your competitive nature, is your inclination to be adaptive, experimental and inquisitive. You value autonomy, flexibility and being different from others.

Here are 5 valuable inclusions that can effectively highlight your qualities within your resume and cover letter:

  1. Highlight in your resume the career goals you have accomplished thus far, utilising concrete figures whenever feasible (e.g., user count, sales objectives, market expansion); 

  2. Emphasise the significance of a work environment focused on achieving results quickly, reflecting your need for productivity and responsiveness to clients; 

  3. Demonstrate your ability to work productively, surmount challenges, and remain resilient in the face of stress; 

  4. Demonstrate your capacity to tackle complex challenges, exhibit creative thinking, engage in experimentation, and embrace continuous learning; 

  5. Showcase your skill in envisioning the future and your aptitude for taking informed and strategic risks.
