Free CV Tips: a great marketing piece

While your past responsibilities may qualify you for positions, they do nothing for building a great first impression. Whether referred to as accomplishments or achievements, they help the potential employer begin to imagine what you can do for his/her company.

Here are a few guidelines for strong accomplishment statements:
  • Accomplishments are more meaningful and objective when quantified either by £, $, % or whole number.
  • Accomplishments are stronger when they demonstrate how they impact the company's bottom line. Demonstrate ROI (Return On Investment).
  • Accomplishments have a stronger impact when they stand out separate from responsibilities. Place responsibilities in a short block of text and accomplishments in a bulleted list.
