Highlighting accomplishments on your resume

In this post, we're going to talk about one of the most difficult things to showcase on a resume: highlighting one's accomplishments.

When writing your resume, you want it to stand out from every other candidate that's competing for the same job.  In other words, you want to separate yourself from the rest of the pack.  You do just that by highlighting your accomplishments.

When highlighting accomplishments on your resume, you want to do more than just say, "I came to work every day, and got the job done," you want to show how much you've contributed to the companies you've worked for.  Examples can range from highlighting specific numbers, such as percentages (increased sales by 75%), to problem solving.

By highlighting your accomplishments on your resume, you're proving to potential employers that you're an exceptional employee, not just another number.
