For Writing Resume Bullet-Points
The best approach to writing your resume is to apply the CARR method to construct your bullet-points. This
method allows you to think about the various aspects of each experience to help you write an action oriented
statement to help you describe your experiences and accomplishments.
C ontext: Workplace Environment, Employees, etc.
“Small, fast-paced literary management office of six employees: One President / CEO, Two Managers,
Two assistants and one intern (me!)”
A ction: Explain your actions, framed in the context of the situation.
“Kept office informed of different changes with clients, Made sure clients were happy—handled
conflict when manager was not available...”
R esult: Explain the result and its benefit.
“Clients and managers were happy, office ran smoothly, projects were able to meet their dead
lines—eventually a movie was made.”
R elate: Connect your experience with the desired qualities to write your bullet points.
• Maintained high-quality client service in a fast-paced environment
• Co-managed client schedules and travel plans
• Collaborated with managers, assistants and clients to create blockbuster movies
