How to List Your Skills and Accomplishments
You have important skills to offer an employer. Even if you’re still in school, you’ve already accomplished things in your career. Learn how to identify your skills and accomplishments to make your work search tools stronger.
Can you list your skills? Which accomplishments should you include in your resumé?
You can divide your skills into 2 broad categories: work-specific and employability skills. See examples of each kind to help you figure out what you have. Record them in the worksheets.
Even if you’re just starting out in the workforce, you have accomplishments to be proud of. Use them to beef up your resumé, cover letter, and interview. If you’re not sure what you’ve accomplished, answer some questions so you can identify them.
Once you know what your skills and accomplishments are, they can help you get your next job. Add them to your master resumé.
As your experience grows, keep adding to your lists. Be proud of what you’ve done!
