An achievement has three parts: using a particular skill, carrying out a particular activity, and getting quantifiable results or benefits. One of the easiest ways to figure out which achievements to write about on your resume is to ask yourself: "What notable things have I done in a job, and what was the quantifiable result?"
For example, instead of saying that you were responsible for planning and completing a project, you can say: "Led a cross-departmental team to review an inventory system; recommendations led to boosting efficiency by 20 percent and cutting waste 25 percent in first year of adoption."
This bears repeating: For the achievements you choose to profile on your resume, aim to relate them to the skills and qualifications profiled in the job ad.
