    Word in a CV to describe a project that shows the candidate's skills

    What would be a good word for a section in a CV to describe a list of publicly available projects that can be evaluated to form an opinion on the skills of the candidate? My understanding is that in English speaking countries the word "references" means a list of people that can be contacted to ask them about the candidate. Is "references" okay for this or do I need another word?

    If the projects have been done by the candidate, how about "achievements"?

    Try "Significant Projects"

    "Achievements" sounds like a quantifiable impact, like "raised income by 50%" not like a project, does it? "Significant Projects" - I'm not sure about this. The word "significant" doesn't mean what I'm trying to express here. Any other suggestions?

    It depends what sort of projects they are- could they be publications or are they part of professional experience?
