It never ceases to amaze me that when candidates prepare a resume duties and responsibilities take the lead over accomplishments. I recently received a resume from a candidate and under each of his positions he listed 4 to 5 accomplishment bullet points. He did a great job relating how well he did in his various positions and when I asked him why he prepared his resume with accomplishments he told me that he felt it was important for people to know how well he did his job and not necessarily what he did.
A simple saying to remember when preparing your resume
is: " Duties and responsibilities tell what you do while accomplishments tell how well you do."
