Have you ever sat down and thought about how skilled you are? If you haven’t, maybe it is time that you did because you will need to mention them on your resume. Skills are a fundamental need if you want to do anything at the workplace. Lack of skills will drop your candidature down a hundred notches.
Resumes are the only places (apart from the actual workplace), where you can show off your skills. Employers do not mind a showoff when it comes to skills. In fact, they need to know what you are capable of so that they can make a decision in your favor.
What would you consider a skill? Any ability that you possess which will help you perform a work duty with excellence is considered a skill. If you are a carpenter, your skills lie in carving wood and using dedicated carpentry tools to help you with a job. If you are a waiter, your ability to be pleasant with people and understanding of the food service industry will be considered a skill.
Yes, everyone does have a skill. No one is without one. However, pulling skills to the surface is important if you want employers to know that you actually possess them. List them in an expressive manner on your resume and you have a great chance of being called in for an interview.
