Question: What is the difference on your resume between a scope of responsibility statement and an accomplishment?
Great question because this is a common mistake on many resumes.
Your scope of responsibility is a summary of your job duties for a particular job. It is usually two to three sentences, and it is listed with your title.
An accomplishment is a description of a contribution of value.
I consistently met my spending goals while reducing turnover and revenue exceeded budget. This sentence details three accomplishments.
I supervised a budget of $24 million covering 80 employees. That is a description of job responsibility.
You should never include a scope of responsibility statement with your bulleted accomplishments.
