It’s probably been said over a million times (by me and other career coaches) that the most effective resumes – meaning the resumes that get interviews – are the resumes that feature accomplishments or significant contributions or career highlights.
Accomplishments are the best way to demonstrate your value as an employee and differentiate yourself from other candidates. However, it can be extremely challenging to identify these impactful moments.
With some positions and industries, accomplishments are more obvious.

But, for other positions, it can feel impossible.
