Please note, to describe your skills most effectively on your resume you want to create a short, concise statement only 2 or 3 lines long that focuses on the actions you took. Where possible, quantify examples with figures e.g. “Produced 18 monthly newsletters with readership of over 200” has more impact than “Produced monthly newsletter”.
Situation or Task:
- What did you achieve?
- How did the situation end?
- What did you learn from the experience?
Situation: During my internship last summer, I was responsible for managing various events.
Task: I noticed that attendance at these events had dropped by 30% over the past 3 years and wanted to do something to improve these numbers.
Action: I designed a new promotional packet to go out to the local community businesses. I also included a rating sheet to collect feedback on our events and organized internal round table discussions to raise awareness of the issue with our employees.
Result: We utilized some of the wonderful ideas we received from the community, made our internal systems more efficient and visible and raised attendance by 18% the first year.
