Resume: Task vs Accomplishment

cw3kcw3k Member Posts: 22 ■□□□□□□□□□
I have a dilemma on how to write my own resume. Task base or accomplishment base. My sister is a super sales and she said always put accomplishment because recruiter probably able to tell your tasks from your title. However, when I look at all the IT resume, they all listed their tasks.

For example, a Unix admin basically repeats system install, patch, application install, etc on every job they ever have. It looks like he copied it from the job description that HR put out.

Is this the best way to capture the recruiter's attention?
