Is there an appropriate way to convey high chargeability on your resume? My firm doesn’t provide quantitative rankings as far as reviews go, but my utilization is 30% higher than the average so I’m trying to figure out how to convey that as an indicator of high performance

I feel like companies that are not consulting firms don’t care about utilization

Good point - I am not really trying to leave consulting at the moment, just trying to jump to a better firm or over to finance

Why don't you add what that translates into? If you worked longer, what was the value of impact you were able to drive over others?

Defs a nerdy consulting thing that no one reading your resume will know or care about.

This isn't a resume item. Utilization doesn't have anything to do with your qualifications.

Could I add a line saying something like my financial metrics rank at the top of the firm with utilization being 30% higher than average/benchmark Or is this just a dumb thing to have on my resume? It feels like an achievement because I’ve worked really hard this year but maybe it’s not good for the resume

Not worth having in resume

Why not put your actual performance rating? Rated as XYZ.

It should translate into you being able to write more about your accomplishments on projects (since you were on more projects)
