Skills and Abilities

For a powerful resume that matches an employer’s needs, it’s essential to communicate your skills and abilities. These can be integrated throughout your resume. Here are some of the sections in which they can appear:

  • In your summary statement
  • In a special skills section
  • As part of your accomplishments
  • In your continuing education

While Beth chose to emphasize her project coordination skills as part of her summary, she could also have listed them in a separate section called “Project Coordination Skills.”

In her summary, Beth also mentions her “exceptional analytical ability” and “talent for managing information.” These are transferable skills—skills that she can use not only as a project coordinator but in a wide range of jobs.

Beth’s skills are also reflected in her Professional Development section. Her course listings there also reinforce the project coordination skills listed in her summary.
