As a consultant, I have had 5 clients over the past 2 years. On my resume, should I list all these experiences as one list of accomplishments and responsibilities or split it into multiple. (see below for an example)

I am finding it awkward to put it as one because my accomplishments are related to the particular client/project I was working on.


1. One list of accomplishments and responsibilities
