Strengthening a resume by using the information on your skills and how effectively you can use them, is nothing new. People have been doing it forever.
However, some make the mistake of writing skills in a way that they make little or no sense to the person reading it. Linking your key skills to workplace experience is important when mentioning them on resumes.
Mostly, Graphic Artist skills fall into 3 categories:
1. Transferable skills:
Skills that have been acquired in one workplace but can be used across many platforms
2. Job-related Skills:
Skills that are specific to the job or trade that you have been employed in, or may receive while being part of an organization.
3. Adaptive Skills:
Personality traits that are hard to quantify because they are inherent and do not relate to actual learning.
For most companies, all 3 are important. An amalgamation of these three is what will get you a job. Showing commercial awareness and impressing employers with your communication skills is imperative.
Your best avenue to do this is to show them by carefully crafting phrases and sentences that define your skills explicitly, and then placing them strategically in your resume.
