All honors are not equal. For example, being named your company’s “Employee of the Year” will likely impress prospective employers; winning a neighborhood poker tournament probably won’t hold as much weight. Many applicants make the mistake of including so-called honors and accomplishments in their resumes that are dated or irrelevant to the job they’re seeking.
Lots of job seekers include an “Affiliations” section on their resume to highlight the professional organizations to which they belong. But not every group with which you’re involved should necessarily be listed on your resume.
