Discover how to put your skills on the curriculum and shine more than the rest
When you accumulate a lot of professional experience, it is normal to doubt when prioritizing certain information over another. So if you do not know what skills to put on the curriculum , do not worry. Next we will try to give you some tips so that you are not afraid to avoid some data and decide which ones best represent you at the work level.
How to highlight your skills in your resume
Focus on your sector
Many times we tend to include our entire professional career even if it is not related to the position to which we apply.
This is a good decision when we talk about profiles with little experience, but if your experience is long, we recommend you avoid putting jobs that surely will not add up when they choose you for the position.
Show your skills
This point may contradict the previous one. And is that although we do not recommend a priori include your waiter summer if you apply for a lawyer position, it may be interesting to do so in the event that a skill of that position can influence who you want.
Putting an example, if you want to get a job in which you will have to lead teams and as a waiter you led a team of 10 people, add it.
Remember: the rule is to include it only if the tasks or functions performed in one of the positions can contribute to the one you are applying.
Define yourself before others do
Before you start ordering and structuring your resume, decide if you want to define yourself as someone who has touched many areas of your profession, or as a very specialized profile. You can even create two versions depending on the offer to which you apply.
Making this decision beforehand will help you decide what to put in the aptitude section of your CV and how to order it.
It is logical to want to tell your own experience in a very detailed way, but you should think about who will read the curriculum. Probably, that person not only has little time to devote to the work, but will also value that you have synthesis skills.
Do the exercise of listing your tasks, skills or functions as you would naturally and then try to unify and synthesize them. Repeat the process two or three times and you will see how you can summarize your experience without detracting from it.
Talk how they want to hear you
You should never lie about an aptitude, but you can focus it one way or another depending on what is required in the position to which you apply.
A single word can make your resume stay on the stack, or be the first one you call.
