Any suggestions for a new job/project on a resume when the job is too new to include relevant achievements?

The value in listing roles/jobs on a resume is to show the following:
1) the problem or challenge you faced coming into the role
2) how you approached and solved the challenge
3) when you "lived with the results" of your decisions, what you learned from it

Therefore, if you have only faced #1 thus far, then outline the problem/challenge, any research you've accomplished thus far on what "you intend" to do to fix/resolve the challenge, or perhaps how you anticiapte making it more efficient, faster, higher quality, better customer service, etc.  If you have not even gotten to #1 yet, then perhaps you give a few bullet points on what you "expect" to deliver/accomplish in the role - which can be your understanding from the interview process (acknowledging you have yet to get into the details and actually do any work thus far).

A new role or job on a resume is a great opportunity to showcase why you were selected for the role/job and what you will bring to it to make it a success.  Employers will also want to see your plan for scoping the work to be done and what major objectives are intended to be accomplished.  Providing this level of detail will also add a preview of what you are capable of if the new role/job is a "stretch" assignment in which you've been given it because you have displayed the skills needed to grow into the position.

I do encourage you to include the new job on your resume, even if you don't have a long list of accomplishments/results yet.  I suggest listing the role and underneath list the key objectives of the role along with the expected results for each.  Here's an example:

- Leading Veteran Outreach strategy that will result in broader awareness of Avery Dennison opportunities and an overall stronger pipe-line of talent.

Note that although I don't list any results - it still conveys what I'm working on and why.

The most important thing to remember is the your resume is a reflection of you. It’s part of your brand. You never want to list anything on your resume that is not true. When starting at new role be sure to highlight not only what you have done, but what you will be doing in your role. In this case, make sure you are using the proper tense. Manage team versus managed team, can make a huge difference.
