An accomplishment statement is an experience listed on your resume that shows an action leading to a result. There are times when students reverse the order and list the result then action. It is more logical to show the action first as you have to do something first (action) to get the result. The action or key transferrable skill is also what employers want replicated so by starting the sentence with this, it grabs their attention.

Action -> Result (also show in my example) is how I remind students of the order for an accomplishment statement.
