Career Hack: Remove Useless Lists of Job Skills from your Resume

I know it feels super gangsta being the only one in the office who has mastered using the fax, printer, copy machine combo (if you don’t get the nod to Office Space, do better and watch that movie on whatever streaming service has it immediately).

Before you embark on your search for the movie, ask yourself two questions.

  1. Have you only included relevant, 21st-century skills on your resume?
  2. Does your resume convey who you are as a professional and all that you have to offer?

You are wasting space on your resume if you are listing your ability to use  Microsoft Office or be a team player. These are skills that are expected of any professional in the workforce today.

Use the valuable space on your resume to demonstrate your ability to be a leader or provide excellent customer service (inside and outside of your organization) using professional accomplishments that required those skills.

  1. Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, excellent blog!

  2. I must express my appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from this incident. Right after looking through the online world and obtaining advice which are not beneficial, I believed my entire life was done. Being alive minus the approaches to the issues you’ve fixed as a result of your good article is a crucial case, and ones which might have negatively damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered the website. The ability and kindness in controlling almost everything was useful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a stuff like this. I am able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for the specialized and amazing guide. I will not be reluctant to endorse your blog to anyone who needs counselling about this area.
