Duties are vague areas of responsibility that may be hard to quantify. Accomplishments are specific, measurable achievements that will impress prospective employers. What sounds better? “Oversaw staff” or “managed 25-member team and increased sales by $7,300?” List measurable accomplishments as often as you can, and use numbers.
One of the most common mistakes that people make is to create a standard resume and send it to all the job openings that they can find. Sure it will save you time, but it will also greatly decrease the chances of landing an interview (so in reality it could even represent a waste of time). Tailor your resume for each employer. The same point applies to your cover letters Take your time customize your resume.
Some companies even use a computer program to scan for keywords so if you don’t include them; a human may not even see your resume. Be sure to cram as many keywords into your resume as you can. Keywords are words that describe requirements in a job posting, the skills, qualities, and credentials that the hiring manager is looking for.Use the keywords in the job description in your resume.
