Expanded Achievements Summary Sample

Purpose: To bring to interviews as a leave-behind to more thoroughly illustrate your ability to add value to an employer

Quick Tips for Writing an Expanded Achievements Summary:

The document below is a sample expanded achievements summary. The achievements summary is a tool that you can include in your career marketing portfolio to leave behind at interviews, helping to make your accomplishment stories more memorable.

Employers are interested in employees who can 1) solve their problems, 2) save them money, 3) make them money, or 4) improve efficiency. The expanded achievements summary can be written in countless formats, but the ultimate goal should be to provide examples that illustrate exactly how you have accomplished these goals for past employers and could therefore produce similar results for future employers. Whenever possible, you should include numbers to illustrate the impact you have had and the results you have produced. These could be presented as whole numbers, dollar figures, or percentages. However, even if you can’t quantify your accomplishments, you should still present them in a way that emphasizes the result or benefit of the accomplishment.

Hi Michelle, First, before I say anything else, I am very impressed by your documents. I am still reviewing them but given my impatient nature, I wanted to send you a note right away :-). What you wrote and how you summarized is simply astounding to me, if I can learn to write with the skill and prose that you demonstrate here, I can likely propel my career even further. All I can say is thank you for doing such a wonderful job. This has exceeded my expectations and the proof will be the results and offers that I receive. I am counting on a good return on my investment and with these materials, believe I am on a good path.

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to say Thank You for the wonderful job on my resume and cover letter! The difference I must say is night and day; it's really amazing:) I feel so much more confident distributing my resume now. Before, I was often hesitant to apply for more competitive jobs because I subconsciously didn't think my resume was up to "par", or worthy enough to distribute, especially to top tier jobs like Google, and other Fortune 500 jobs...Silicon Valley is known for its very competitive job market (and I must say it definitely lives up to this reputation) and before I felt that while I had the skills, experience, and drive to compete for a job here in the San Jose and San Francisco area, my resume did not allow me to show it. Now, with my new resume and cover letter, I feel so much more CONFIDENT that my resume will get me noticed in the more competitive jobs, which is exactly why I hired Distinctive Document's services! So, in this case, I did definitely get what I paid for :0) (This sounds so much like one of those accolades on your website lol but it's true!) I cannot thank you enough, and I cannot stop admiring my resume and cover letter...I love them that much!
