Learn what skills need to appear on a resume to make you look professional and trustworthy

When you are asked to list skills in your resume, what comes to your mind? To many people, it is translated as the things they are good at - typing, public speaking, etc. So true these things can be considered as skills but when it comes to the job market, you have to include those skills that selectively the employers wish to see on your resume. Why? Because the company and the job you are interviewing for both require a very particular set of skills to get it done effectively. Packing the skills section of your resume with a bunch of competence that has nothing to do with the job you are applying is a waste of opportunities. That's why it's important to include the right skills as required. The skills section allows you to list, reiterate and elaborate upon qualifications and abilities that are only relevant to the job you are applying for.
