There are two types of sample achievement statements that quantify results.

Resume achievements about money
Resume achievements that quantify non-monetary results

 

1.Resume achievements about money

Employers like a good resume achievement that hits a financial bottom line with a quantified result. Most bottom lines can be measured. So this type of resume achievement statement is apt to contain:

Numbers, numbers, numbers!
The percent or dollar sign
Keywords such as money, revenue, profit, income, savings, cost, expense, sales, market share, and P&L

Each of the following examples of resume achievement statements hits a bottom line with a quantified result. The statements are taken from lots of different resume samples on this site.

If you glance at the entire resume for any of these achievement statements, you'll notice how the numbers and dollar/percent signs catch your eye and give the resume a sense of credibility. Even if you just scroll down this page, you'll see how the numbers and symbols pop out. That's what you want to have on your resume!
