A pretty standard mid-level accountant resume example. The opening career summary outlines the candidate's strongest qualities while remaining concise. If you want to improve on it, structure yours using bullet points to make it easier to read. Second, notice the use of past tense in each of the subsections. Such use of language has much greater impact on the reader than a simple list of responsibilities. Finally, even if keywords are missing in the main body of the resume, the strengths section makes up for it.
