In the Summary area of your resume, you can brag a bit. In the resume Skills section you can even brag a little more.
This section will cap off all that qualifies you for your intended position. You’ll show your prospective employer that there can be no other and the journey stops with you!
How do you do this in the best way? You’ll continue to show that you are the right one for the job by going into better detail about all that you wrote of in your Summary section. This requires careful wording so as not to repeat yourself. If you can pull this off professionally, using words that glow, you’ll have the attention you are looking for!
The biggest key point about writing the resume Skills section is that you’re not going to inform. You must highlight in more detail, what your prospective employer already believes to be true about you as an ideal candidate.
The Purpose of the Skills and Accomplishments Section
Try to go into good detail about the following:
• Any benchmarks or landmarks accomplished as the result of your unique skill-set.
• Using facts, figures and statistics, show how your best efforts showed the best results.
• Your specific talents and unique gifts as related to your job.
• All accomplishments that set you apart.
To be most effective, you’ll use clear, crisp writing that sums things up. You’re going into detail here, but not so much detail so that this section can read like a story.
Key Point -- Write so that you can give hints and not complete details. You’ll want your prospective employer to call you in for the interview to learn more! This will be critical.
