In HuntHelper, tracking your achievements is the key enabler to unlocking success in your career. They are evidence of your skills, and proof of your value to a company. Regularly saving your achievements in HuntHelper will give you a useful record of your work that you can use for many different purposes.
You can save achievements in HuntHelper by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject of the email should be a one-line summary of the achievement - something you might write on your resume. The body of the email should be a detailed description of the achievement. What problem you solved, what obstacles had to be overcome, and who else you worked with. This should be something like you might tell an interviewer. You’ll receive an email back with your recent achievements.
Linking achievements to skills
Achievements not only demonstrate your ability to produce results, but they are also indicate your skills. When you overcome a difficult challenge at work, you’re showing that you have a particular set of skills. Being able to tie your skills to your achievements is a powerful way to make your case in job interviews, salary negotiations, and considerations for promotions. HuntHelper allows achievements to be tagged with skills. Once you have a list of achievements tagged with skills, you’ll be able to match your achievements with the requirements of a job or promotion.
Linking achievements to people
While some achievements are completed alone, many important projects in your career will be completed as a team. HuntHelper allows you to link people in your network to specific achievements, so you can have a record of who you worked with. This can be useful in the future to have a ready list of references for specific projects, and also if your company has an annual review process you’ll have a list of people who can give feedback on your recent work.
Link all the things!
The beauty of having your achievements tagged with skills and people is that if you start looking for a new job, you’ll easily be able to link specific accomplishments to the needs of a new position. Even better, if you use your network to look for a job, you’ll be able to talk about your career in terms of skills, which is one way to create your own job title. You can find more information on how to do this in the resource library or in advanced topics (coming soon.)
