Give the bot some information about the size and breadth of your position along with a prompt similar to this one: "Create three to five succinct bullet points for my roles at [employer 1, employer 2, employer 3] using the data and numbers provided. Verify that the numbers correspond to the impact and that any adverbs are always supported.

Consider that “hired a new team quickly” is not as powerful as saying you hired seven people in less than three months. See how the adverb is supported, quickly, by its disappearance? Size and scope matters, in a résumé - adverbs, no so much.
