As Adelaide resume writers and Illawarra resume writers, we know a few tricks which may help you get short listed, especially if recruiters use scanners. We include key words and clauses in a section we call Professional Capabilities on the first page. Only list those that apply to you – NOT ALL OF THEM. In a resume, you’d expect to include four or five of these areas. You will need to support their inclusion in the body of the resume.
I will post Part Two of resume key words, terms and clauses tomorrow.
These are the skills that help you to plan, prepare, and get things done in the workplace.
Time management: managing your own time to get the job done. Especially useful in fast-paced work environments.
Research and analytics: researching and collecting data, analysing, reporting on findings and making recommendations.
Administration and clerical: efficiently handling tasks like filing, paperwork and communications including phone or email, plus managing calendars and appointments.
Financial management: developing and managing budgets, keeping financial records, fundraising or project managing.
Sales and marketing: marketing and selling a product or service, or influencing behaviour.
Creative thinking: generating new ideas and coming up with innovative solutions to problems.
Planning: managing yourself, others and available resources with a goal in mind, and creating plans for projects or events.
Technology or digital literacy: being able to use and quickly adapt to new technology, programs or tools.
Workplaces rely on communication for things to run smoothly, so skills you have here will be a benefit to them.
These skills can be used when communicating within your team or company, as well as to customers.
Writing: it’s any kind of interaction that involves the written word, such as reports, emails, letters, sales materials and articles.
Face-to-face: communicating in person, including facilitating meetings, interviewing, persuading, negotiating, expressing ideas plus speaking in public or to groups.
