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.
