Creating a skills list to put in a resume is one challenging job. How does one discover self-worth? Believe us when we say that once you have discovered this, you can write any job application document with great ease.
Step one is realizing what you are worth. This might not be too difficult if you sit down with a clear mind and write down exactly what your capabilities are. Your skills could lie in how you communicate with people, or how you can develop fool proof marketing plans. Anything can be a skill. The only thing that you do need to look out for is relevance. Once you’ve created the list, shortlist it for relevant information. What skills does a prospective employer want? Do you have those skills? How closely are they related? Answer these questions and you will see that you have automatically created a skills list that a prospective employer can use!
Place this shortlisted information in your resume, using appropriate statements. If you just put them in without giving them the benefit of explanation, you risk losing points. After all, skilled in communicating makes no sense to an employer who wants to know how exactly you are skilled in communicating something! The best way to put skills into statements?
