Has it ever occurred to you that you are an exceptionally skilled emergency management professional who can make wonders happen at the work place? No? Well, it is time that you developed that confidence in yourself and made sure that prospective employers know it too! How? There is a simple way to do this – your resume. The resume is a powerful document that tells the employer all there is to know about you. Why not use it to communicate your skills as well?
If you have ever been through a resume yourself, you will know just how important it is to mention your skills. Through these, the employer gets to know all about you and how well you can fit into his workplace specifically. These are two things that are most important to employers and you can give them these by simply writing the skills section on your resume in a profound manner.
What exactly is the skills section required to project? The simplest answer is your skills. Too obvious? Not really. When you write the skills section, you have to concentrate on more than just the skills. You also need to concentrate on how well your skills are communicated on paper. For most positions, this is how skills can be mentioned on a resume:
• Track record of developing and implementing plans and strategic, operational and tactical procedures and protocols to execute health and safety management functions
• First-hand experience in reviewing incident action plans and provide input on emergency management goals and objectives
• Demonstrated ability to judge response capability limitations and propose tactics for coordinated response activities
