In the old days, people used to make resumes in a certain way. They only list their experiences, and that was it. It was up to the hiring manager to decide really what the candidate could do for the employer.
Then as time went by, some people began to realize that just writing on your resume what you had done, full stop, was perhaps not enough. How was the prospective employer to understand that yes, you had done all this work, and you knew how to apply it in new situations? How were they know if you were well versed in it, and not just, well, embellishing your resume?
If you don’t write anything on your resume except your experiences, it is impossible to give an all-around view of what you can do. Modern resumes always have a list of accomplishments that the resume maker has achieved, to show the hiring manager that he or she knows what he or she is doing.
Another thing a list of accomplishments will tell the hiring manager is, as has already been written here, how you can apply your achievements to new situations. This is all important when applying for a new job because the hiring manager doesn’t really care what you’ve done. He wants to know what you can do in the future.
Here’s a list of sample accomplishments for a picker-packer:
