Our skills are usually our best kept secrets. Not intentionally, but we often end up not disclosing them because we don’t know that by doing so, we are doing no one but ourselves a great favor. How is that? Well, based on our skills, we can convince a hiring manager to give us a chance to prove ourselves in a real time environment. Hiring managers are difficult to please with information of experience only. They need a little more to base their hiring decisions on. Once they find out about a candidate’s skills, it becomes somewhat less difficult for them to decide if the person is worth anything at all.
How does one mention one’s skills in an inventory control supervisor resume? There is only one proper way of doing this – use bullets to define what your capabilities are. But first, find out what they are yourself. Unless you know what you are capable of, you cannot possibly write anything in a resume. Self-analysis is step one. How good are you at what you are expected to do? What special abilities do you possess that make you an excellent person for the company to hire? How well will you be able to perform once you are hired? All these need to be answered in the skills section of your resume – not literally though.
