How To Write An Education Based Skills Resume
Ditching An Objective
Objectives can be useful, but this resume just jumps right in to describing your qualifications.
This resume starts off with a key qualifications section, which should be made up of 2-4 word phrases that describe technical skills & abilitites. The skills should of course match up from the job listing & what the employer wants.
If you need to add more skills across the three columns, you may need to remove some of the work experience bullet points to stay on a single page.
Multiple School Education
The resume provides multiple school listing space in case you have graduated or are still in graduated school. For this reason, this resume can also be used in applications for colleges.
With two school listings, you may need more space to describe your qualifications and accomplishments. So if necessary, take some space from the employment experience and move it over under your school’s heading.
Listing ANY Experience
An experience section is included on this resume just in case you have some volunteer type of experience to talk about.
Your experience does not need to be in the same type of indusry as the job you’re seeking. At this point, any type of experience is good to list. It can show reliability and trustworthiness – two important attributes to show when you’re just starting out.
