Developing accomplishment statements sets you apart from your competition.
Successful marketing involves packaging your skills and experiences to demonstrate your strengths to a potential employer. Accomplishment Statements, not fancy graphics, bright paper, or other unnecessary flair, are what make your resume stand out in a crowd. These statements also serve as the foundation for the examples you will share in networking situations and interviews to demonstrate the value you bring to potential employers.
Accomplishment statements are not descriptions of your job duties; they are specific contributions you have made to your organization, either individually or as part of a team. Accomplishment statements can include assignments you have completed and special projects you have worked on, whether through paid work or volunteer experiences. You may find it helpful to review your performance appraisals for specific examples of your accomplishments.
