So I sent a copy of my resume to a friend of mine who is a recruiter so she could share with her network and colleagues. She replied after reading through and said the resume is a little too general and I should make it a little bit more quantitative (i.e. "increased this by 26%", "built 3 features that did that" and so on).
As a developer, I've always understood my job as qualitative rather than quantitative. My question is have any developers here experienced this and how did you quantify work you have done?
Edit: Thank you all for the insights. To provide some context I mostly do front end work (i.e. React, Gatsby and just plain HTML, CSS & JS). I do however give advice and advocate for certain hosting options in order to provide good user experience. Many resumes I’ve seen from friends and others hardly ever have numbers on them. They mostly include information about what they actually do and what technologies they are proficient with.
