Quickly scan your resume. Do you see the phrase responsible for anywhere on your resume? If so, it is very possible your resume is focused on your job responsibilities and not results.
While employers do want to know what you were in charge of at your job, they would rather see the results of that work. It’s great that you led the team on their process improvement initiative, but what were the results of that initiative? Cost savings? Quality improvements? Decreased delivery time? Great! Make sure to put that on your resume! Employers want to know that if they put you in charge of a task you are likely to produce good results.
