Resume Writing for Individuals who want to be gainfully employed

Updated: Feb 21, 2023

Use numbers to highlight your accomplishments

Use numbers, percentages or dollars to highlight your accomplishments—you can find this information in things like your performance reviews, previous job descriptions, awards and letters of recommendation.

When explaining your accomplishments:

  • Include examples of how you saved money, earned money or managed money.

  • Include examples of how you saved or managed time.


  • “Improved efficiency of document processing by 25 percent over the previous year”.

  • “Wrote 25 news releases in a three-week period under daily deadlines”.

  • “Managed a student organization budget of more than $7,000”.

  • “Wrote prospect letter that has brought in more than $25,000 in donations to date”.

These statements show in concrete terms what you accomplished.
