1. Why is it important to highlight job responsibilities on your resume?

Inversely highlighting the position´s responsibilities in a resume is essential when it comes to beating the competition. This shows the employer that you know what the responsibilities for the position are and have the ability to meet them without any need for additional training. This can be done particularly through the summary and responsibilities in work experience. In the summary, concentrate on your attributes learned through previous responsibilities and in the work experience, list past responsibilities in a way that describes the skill used and the result of this skill being implemented.

2. Tell me what are the difference between job responsibilities and job duties?

There is little difference between job responsibilities and job duties. Duties are basically the tasks that the employer assigns (sweeping, mopping). Responsibilities are things that we know we need to do (show up on time for work, wear appropriate clothing). On the other hand, duties are things we must do daily, cooking, cleaning, and making our beds. Responsibilities are meant to help designate or bind us to our actions. The good news is that although responsibilities can be seen as a hindrance, by following them, individuals become respected.

7. Tell me how does an internal responsibility system work?

The internal responsibility system is the underlying philosophy of the occupational health and safety legislation in all Canadian jurisdictions. Its foundation is that everyone in the workplace both employees and employers is responsible for his or her own safety and for the safety of co-workers. Acts and regulations do not always impose or prescribe the specific steps to take for compliance. Instead, it holds employers responsible for determining such steps to ensure health and safety of all employees.
