Here is an easy “ABC” formula that you can use to brainstorm and develop accomplishments for your resume:


ACTION: What actions did you take that benefited your employer? In short, how did your actions contribute to reducing costs, saving money, developing new business, or streamlining operations?


BOTTOM LINE BENEFIT: How did this action benefit the employer? If possible, build this action into a bottom-line benefit by incorporating specific quantifiable results.


CONCISE and CLEAR: Eliminate redundant words, streamline the writing, and make this statement as clear and concise as possible.
