Leaving the skills section out of your resume is giving off the impression that you are not skilled!
And unskilled people are not what employers look for. Wait, you are skilled?
Well, then make sure that the skills section on your resume is not only there but is a strong one.
Why so much emphasis on this?
Look at it this way – what will an employer do with an employee who does not know how to do anything because he has no skill?
The resume is a strong document as it has many sections that are complete information blocks in themselves. And each block has its own set of powers.
So does the skills section – in fact, this section is more important than any others apart from maybe the accomplishments one.
Now comes the part where we discuss what to put in the skills section. But first, let’s see how information needs to be placed.
Simply writing skilled in handling events is not going to impress the employer. It is obvious to him that you are skilled if you have applied for a particular position.
But he wants to know how you will use your skills to achieve something for the company. Here is where the challenge is. Want to know how to overcome this?
Have a look at the following sample statements that you can use in the skills section of your resume:
