Do you need “Accomplishments” on your Resume?

Your resume is how employers first meet you…before they actually decide to have a conversation via email or telephone. Is your resume truly doing you any justice or causing you to get tossed in the throw away pile EVERY TIME?

In a previous video, I talked about how the “Summary of Qualifications” replaced the objective section on a resume. You can watch that video..here’s link here…

You will also need to add what you have accomplished in your previous job opportunities to show how you applied the knowledge, skills and expertise to achieve positive or desired results. Your future employer needs to know you can create those positive or desired results for them as well, so showcasing your accomplishments communicate it to them directly. The accomplishments are helping to market you better than other candidates that only communicate their skills, knowledge base and credentials.
