    Default Achievements vs Accomplishments

    Hi,

    Question1:
    In a resume, suppose there is a achievements section and a accomplishments section, which part will write (a) and (b) in?


    (a) Showed the ability to explain difficult ideas (when I was a ..)
    (b) BSc in Music with Second Class Honours.


    Question2:
    In a resume, what is the difference (in term of meaning) between achievements accomplishments?

    Thanks

    things that you can do = accomplishments

    things you have earned or been awarded or honored = achievements

    To me the two words are virtually identical. Both "a" and "b" can, as I see it, fit under either category.
