A Resume That Excels

So you’re finishing up your resume and added the common “Skills” section at the bottom like most resumes you have seen.

You include any foreign languages you know, and your computer skills.

For most students, the Skills section could look something like this:

Basic Spanish
Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word

·      Charts
·      Formulas
·      Functions

If you want to learn or relearn these skills, there are various free tutorials online including (which I found through a quick Google search).

Listing specific Excel skills might start to become more common, as employers start to ask candidates to give more detail about their Excel skills in interviews. And your skills section can perhaps look like this:

Basic Spanish
Microsoft Excel – PivotTables, Charts, Microsoft Word
