Result Statements
An effective way to highlight your accomplishments is by using
results statements.

Result statements explain what situation you faced at work, what action you took, and the outcome. It is another way of giving specific examples of your accomplishments and how they benefited your employer.

Think about your successes or the problems you have solved. Be specific.

The statement “works well under pressure” is general and does not tell the prospective employer anything in detail. Instead, give an example where you performed well under pressure.

If your result is that you “completed the project before the deadline and also under budget,” be sure to state how much percentage under budget.

The goal of these statements is to show an employer you have a proven track record of providing results.

You can use results statements to both paid and unpaid employment.
