Everyone, as an individual, has a certain set of skills that no one else has. That is to say, others might have the same skills, but no one has them in the same combination that each individual does.
The problem is, when he or she applies to a job, the hiring manager has no idea what his skills are, because he or she does not know the candidate at all. So the thing to do is to let him know. But how does he do this? The answer is, he puts his skills on his resume.
So what skills should he put on his resume? Well, he needs to choose the right ones. Let’s see if these will help:
• Planning and organization
• Time management
• Stress tolerance
And there are many more. Now, he can’t just put these words on his resume and expect them to do the job. He needs to put them in relevant sentences that make sense, and then he can convince the hiring manager that he is the best candidate for the job.
For example, for the position of a child care provider, when a person is trying to identify which skills he needs to put on his resume, he must keep in mind what he will need to be someone who is taking care of a child or children.
