How should I prioritize my accomplishments and skills?

Prioritizing Accomplishments in a Resume

You should prioritize your accomplishments and skills according to impressiveness, uniqueness, and relevance to the prospective position. Don't bury the skill that would be most likely to impress a recruiter.

Resumes are scanned quickly, so a recruiter may move on to the next resume if you lead with an irrelevant skill. Revenue and statistical data can make a big impression on a resume, so keep track of what you do in your daily work that is impacting the company overall.
