I am about to finish a semester internship and looking for the right way to highlight the results of a software that I wrote.
In a nutshell, I automated a task that would take around 6.5 hours for an average employee to complete. It now runs in 20 minutes by using Java. I've been thinking of various ways to highlight this on my resume. Here are the possible scenarios:
- Automated a manual task that took 6.5 hours to 20 minutes.
- Improved efficiency to 95% when retrieving data from various DBs
- X Task runs 19 times faster than before
I'm not sure what the proper metrics are to use when measuring how you improved a process. You can talk about efficiency being 95% (370mins/390mins). You can also talk about the percentage difference between 20 minutes and 390 mins which is 180%. You can also talk about how much faster it is when compared to the old process (19 times faster or XXX% faster)...
How can I show that work in a resume?
