What to Put on a Resume?

by Amber
(Reserve, NM )

What exactly should I write about myself?

ANSWER: Amber, If you want to succeed in life, you have to be willing to study and learn. There are many pages on this website that will help you learn what to put about yourself on your resume.

I certainly can't answer that here, as I know absolutely nothing about you, your educational background, or your job experience.

Start here and follow the links on each page to learn what you need to know about resumes.

To your success!

It depends on what type of job you're going for. For example I'm a receptionist/office assistant and these are the skills listed on my resume:
Team player with excellent communication skills
Reliable, flexible and hard working
Computer skills: Windows, XP, PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, QuickBooks, Aphelion, Internet research
But another example would be my dad's resume and he is a driver/Warehouse worker and these are the skills listed on his resume:
„X Team-Player with excellent communication skills
„X Class C Driver¡¦s License (Clean DMV record)
„X Forklift Experience
„X Very familiar with the Bay Area
„X Great hand skills and quick learner
„X Flexible, reliable and dependable hard-worker
„X Motivated self-starter with a strong desire to learn
„X Professional appearance, attitude and demeanor
„X Basic knowledge of PC and computer software

So TEAMWORK, EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION SKILLS, RELIABLE, QUICK LEARNER are some that apply to any job type. Hopefully this helps. Good luck!
