How Do You Choose The Skills To Put On a Resume

You know what you’re good at.  You know the things you grew up doing as a kid, or the things you learned in school (and excelled in), or the activities you did after school (ex. sports, fine arts, clubs, etc.).

So you should already have a list of things that you would consider yourself proficient in.

This is a good place to start.

1) Make a List of The Skills You Know You Have
