    Resume expert Louise Kursmark discusses putting achievements on a resume.

    Host: Does it make sense to put as many accomplishments as I can in the front on my resume? Louise Kursmark: As I said, some people really like to include their good stuff upfront on a resume because they call it front billing and they want to get it right up there so, there's no possibility the employer can miss it. I really like to use what I call Wow Achievement. I want you to select two, three or four things that are the most notable about you, that really illustrate what you can do and you have done. They are dynamic, they are filled with specifics, they are not generalized at all and they are going to be like a little, tiny taste of the value that you can bring. I suggest including those in the top part of your summary before you move down into the chronological section in your resume.
