This accomplishments-focused resume template will help you draw the reader along through all of your most impressive and relevant career achievements. You may have heard before that your resume should always focus on accomplishments rather than responsibilities. Here is why: If you are a parent, it is likely that your child is "responsible for" cleaning his room. But, does he actually do this? It is likely that your answer is no, or at least not as well as you would like. But, if he wrote a responsibilities-focused resume he could include the statement "responsibilities include cleaning my bedroom."
Focusing on responsibilities in your resume tells the reader nothing beyond what you are supposed to do. Focusing on accomplishments, on the other hand, tells the reader what you did do. This is a very important difference! Employers are interested in your potential to add value to their company. They come to understand your value potential based on the value you have delivered to past employers. Always focus on accomplishments and results in your resume, and this accomplishments-focused resume template will make it easy for you to do that.
If you are having trouble identifying accomplishments to include in your resume, think in terms of how you have saved employers money, made them money, increased efficiency, or improved productivity. This list of accomplishment questions for your resume might be helpful too.
Another feature in the resume template within the Career Booster Collection is the Snapshot boxes that are designed to help you really call attention to your most significant value-adding contributions to each past employer. Follow the prompts in the resume template to make the most of this format. The entire collection is a great choice for creating an executive resume or for any experienced professional.
