Simplifying science by selling the features of medical equipment to physicians and lab leaders
I work at University of Michigan and want to work in medical devices in some capacity. I have many years training world class physicians, lab leaders and students on how to operate million dollar instruments in a fee for service lab. I also promote the features and benefits of using the instruments and sell the idea on becoming trained on how to operate them.
When it comes to quantifying accomplishments on resume I become flummoxed on what to quantify or I need possible suggestions on what to quantify. Thanks in advance. Sean

Accomplishments are key for your resume, LI profile and in the interview. To start, I recommend writing out your top 10-15 from the last 10 years in the CAR (Challenge Action Results) format. The "Results" part of that equation is typically used to quantify outcomes with numbers, dollars and percentages, though any part of the CAR can include them.
If you don't have numbers to back up your success stories, you can still have a positive result/outcome/benefit to the company or client, such as improving / streamlining a process, resolving / preventing issues, increasing morale, improving workflow, ensuring quality, motivating teams, improving productivity, etc.
The bottom line is that accomplishments are a differentiator, and they demonstrate the measurable, quantitative and qualitative impact you had on an organization, distinguishing you from the competition.
