Do you struggle identifying accomplishments for your résumé?
Many job seekers struggle to articulate accomplishments in their résumés. While some people are natural boasters, others are not. However, accomplishments are a key element of an effective résumé.
Asking questions about what you have done is a great way to help identify key accomplishments. Below are 30 questions that can help you identify accomplishments to include in your résumé. Note, not all accomplishments are relevant to your job search. Use the most relevant accomplishments for the positions for which you plan to apply.
When possible, use data to support your accomplishments. If you are concerned about divulging potentially confidential information, be cautious in how you word things. For example, you can use percentages instead of dollar amounts. While not every accomplishment needs supporting data, it is beneficial to include some data points.
