I review the specific skillsets that are required for the intended position and match them to my experience and accomplishments for each position I’ve held. I quantify those accomplishments by providing context and evidence.
I haven't looked at the other responses so if I happen to say something similar, well, I suppose you can take it to the bank!! The way I go about presenting accomplishments is under each specific position, I first write a short paragraph that gives overall information about what you do. Then, I list the accomplishments for that job under the paragraph with bullets. I've been doing this for years and never had any complaints!!
Rule of Thumb! Grab the recruiters attention and use a reader friendly template.
Hello Bill, I think it’s best to present them short and concise like so employers can easily scan them, you want to put your best foot forward so to speak and make sure it’s easy to digest so they don’t have to spend too much time scanning your resume for your accomplishments.
It just depends upon the particular position and the requirements needed for the position. Truth is, I may need to create different resumes depending upon the type of job I am applying for.
For some positions, like in education you will need to indicate your education, certifications, as well as experience level.
For an IT position, you usually have to indicate your education, IT certifications, and experience.
I put my degrees, certifications, and CDL endorsements on my header. I also put my G.P.A. It’s the second thing they see when looking at my resume. My header starts off with my name and contact information than my accomplishments.
