Given the previous example, it’s obvious that everybody can or should have accomplishment; from graduate or entry-level to professional in the top position.
Pay attention when disclosing accomplishment:
- Never take credit for someone’s or team’s accomplishment. Be honest. If you’re part of the team, say it clearly.
- Always come together with positive result(s). One sentence of accomplishment without positive result(s) is considered responsibility, non-understandable or inappropriate. It’s like demonstrating a sports car without describing how many seconds it takes to reach 100 km per hour.
- Never boost the positive result(s) – always be honest. Quantifiable result is preferred but not definitely absolute value.
- Put positive result(s) before action that triggers such result. Positive result triggers readers’ interest in knowing how to make it.
- Because accomplishment has higher selling point, it should be placed before responsibilities in a resume. The higher the position, the more accomplishments readers expect to see, the higher chance to be called for an interview.
