I am surprised by the number of people I speak to who believe that achievements and an accomplishments-centric resume are "not appropriate" for their field.
To present yourself as someone who raises the bar – who achieves things – is always in order. Even if you are in, say, Science or Education you can present achievements without diluting the need to also present what you've done.
Remember, the point of a resume is to present your background, experience and potential in a compelling way that separates you from the crowd. There is no need – no matter your field – to present yourself as part of the pack.
If you don't make yourself standout, there will be another candidate who will.
