Application question [#permalink] New post 11 Oct 2005, 13:45
Most applications ask you to enter your current employer, responsibilities, etc. Since they also want a current resume, am I expected to use the same information (responsibilities) on my resume with the information in the application, i.e., cut and paste from the resume into the application?

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

If the job history asks for responsibilities, use the resume to spotlight impact and achievements. (and if you have space to repeat a few accomplishments in the job history, go ahead.)

Thanks for the response. The employment section in the application does ask me to list my responsibilities so I'll go ahead and list mine there. Does that mean I should only focus on my accomplishments, impact, leadership, etc. on my resume (and leave out my responsibilities all together)?

As much as possible focus on accomplishments in your resume.

Good luck!
