One of the most challenging parts of writing a steward resume is creating the skills section.
Everything else that you put on a resume can be handled without much problem, as the information is usually in front of you in the form of job descriptions.
Where skills are concerned, you have to think.
What capabilities do you possess which make you an excellent person to hire?
What can you contribute to an organization?
What specific skills do you possess which can eventually help you achieve something, and in turn, help the company accomplish a goal?
It is not easy to answer all these questions in the form of skills statements.
In the good news department, skills statements can easily be derived from job descriptions. But this only works if you know that the job description does align with your skills.
If it doesn’t, it will be considered a fib, which has a high chance of being found out once you are hired, and are unable to handle the work assigned to you.
To keep it safe, do a self-analysis. Put the job description of the position for which you are applying in front of you, and then align your skills accordingly. Every time you get a check, you will have a skills statement.
