As a dining room attendant, how do you rate your skills on a scale of 1 to 10? Difficult question? Perhaps. However, by asking yourself this question, you can gauge how well you know the work. Why would you want to know? Maybe you don’t, but a prospective employer will definitely need to know what you have that you can offer to him. So a skills assessment is important.
When you write a dining room attendant resume, your skills are what are going to sell your candidature to the prospective employer. Missing out on this section may mean that you are missing out on a great opportunity. If the resume is the cake, then the skills section is the icing! Without it, you may not be able to sell yourself to a high bidder.
What does the skills section include? Everything that you have learnt about the work (for the position that you are applying) and all that was inherent in you, goes into the skills section of a resume. It is fundamentally important that you make it obvious, that there is no other person who can be deemed as a better choice for the position.
