Resume skills

When writing your resume, the majority is telling about your experience and skills.  It is important to not only put emphasis on where you worked and what you did, but what you learned and can contribute to the next place of employment.

Your skills should be specific and descriptive.  You should be able to say what your skill is in one or two words.  Using strong adjectives to describe your skills helps to enhance and create bold emphasis on what you have to offer.
