Is it important for a resume to be updated annually?  When it comes to accomplishments it is not only important to reflect on what we have achieved but to write it down.  Even if you’re not looking for a new position or a new job, it’s always a good idea to give your resume an update.

Adding accomplishments to your resume can help recruiters analyze the value you can bring to their company. Including accomplishment statements in your resume can offer you the opportunity to show the specific ways you’ve impacted success and delivered results. Understanding how to properly write accomplishment statements may help you highlight your competence to potential employers and increase your chances of securing an interview.


Think about your work achievements that are action-oriented, measurable and unique to you all put into a statement that is concise and detailed.

Go beyond your typical duties and responsibilities of your previously held positions and instead highlight the specific ways you successfully accomplished tasks, exceeded goals and generated results.  When possible, include concrete numbers.


Use the CAR formula: Challenge, Action, and Result. Your accomplishment should start with the problem or challenge, the action you took, and the result of your hard work.

Remember to keep the content of accomplishment statement relative to the job you are applying for.

Here are some examples:

“Gained a reputation for working well on a team that was having communication problems, I created programs to create a more team atmosphere, receiving a ‘Team Player’ award.”

“Raised more than $25,000 at our annual fundraiser, increasing attendance and media coverage from previous years.”

“Knowing there was a lack of certification in my field, I earned a new degree while working full-time.”

The process of developing Accomplishment Statements helps you recognize your achievements and prepares you for articulating these achievements to potential employers on your resume and in interview situations.
