In this activity, students will learn about Accomplishment Statements, including a helpful formula for writing them. They’ll learn why these types of statements are important and useful when you’re building your resume because they show potential employers what you did and the impact of your actions.

Students will review examples of Accomplishment Statements, practice drafting their own, then pair up to give feedback on each other’s statements.
