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.

Thank you so much for all the work you have done! Frankly, I dreaded the prospect of writing my resume initially. I hit upon the idea of finding someone else to do it and that process was no picnic either, till I found you! You have made this whole process so easy and pleasant. When I got the first draft of my resume I thought, "She must have sent me the wrong resume...who is this person?!". When I found my name and realized that the jobs and experiences were indeed mine, WOW was I amazed! That was the best money I ever spent! Here we are a year later with an update, and yet another excellent job. As much as I dislike changing jobs at least I know that the resume writing will no longer be an issue, I have you! Thanks again.

I wanted you to know that I was offered a position yesterday here in the XXXXX area at an excellent medical device/laser therapy equipment company. I have accepted the position... Now that the search is over, I want you to know that I have had more responses to my resume in the last 3 months than at any other time in my career. I have had multiple responses to cold call mailings. (a ten fold increase over previous cold job searches) Also the e-distribution you sent out netted me 1 phone interview per every 8-10 e-mail response. Excellent!! I am a faithful supporter of your work. Thanks again.

I have been waiting before writing to give you the great news...I applied to about eight recruitment agencies with my resume attached, all on the Internet. Within a few days I was contacted and asked to go for an interview at a company only 35 miles away. It is 3.5 years old and sells consultancy at a very senior level in large corporations...This week I received the offer letter...What has become very clear in this process is the incredible value of a good resume. Because you made it abundantly clear what I had achieved through a "messy" but interesting career path, this recruitment agency was immediately able to connect my past experience with the vacancy they knew needed me. I did not need to explain the details of my past but rather was able to continually point out where my past benefited or suited the vacancy being offered. It meant that I was able to concentrate on selling myself rather than explaining myself away...So, to say thank you seems so inadequate. But say it, I will. Thank you for doing such a good job. I have to say I did not think I would find another job at my age, but with a combination of good luck and a good resume, I made it....Initially I thought your service was expensive, but given the results, no one could complain. Thank you again.
