When filling out my work history, should I list my duties or list my accomplishments?

Accomplishment Statements in a Resume

Simply listing your job duties on your resume is not very valuable. It's quite likely that many people have the same job duties as you. You differentiate yourself from the competition by elaborating on how you have leveraged those duties to improve business.

Resume Writing Tip: You should list any revenue that you brought in and any savings you may have sparked through analysis, project work or your every day duties. Listing job duties tells the employer about your job; listing accomplishments tells the employer about you.
