It's essential that your resume emphasize your strengths at a glance

How to Emphasize Achievements on Resumes

Since companies often get hundreds of resumes submitted for every job opening, it’s essential that you know what to emphasize on a resume. Your resume must emphasize your strengths at a glance. The HR manager, hiring manager, or headhunter only has a few minutes to review your resume.

Professional resume writers know how to write resumes that target the job you want. One way we do that is by beginning bullet points with powerful action verbs followed by quantitative information.

Here are a few examples of correctly written resume bullet points:
-Achieved 105% of sales goal for Crestor in 2011.
-Increased order entry frequency from 8 months to 3 weeks, enabling retailers to better manage the business and respond in real time to industry trends.
-Won a $1.5M, 2 year contract within the 1st 3 months of tenure that proved to be essential to the success of the company.ter only has a few minutes to review your resume.
