Resume tips: skills you should always mention on your CV as on 2018 April

The main goal of writing a resume is to catch hiring manager’s attention. An impressive resume is your only chance to get the interview call. If the job listing is for software developer’s position, writing “Microsoft Office” in your skills is going to put off the hiring manager. The ideal resume is the one where you are not really bragging about your skills while writing an eye-catchy skills section.

The most common mistake by job seekers is an obsession with programming languages. Even candidates applying for semi-technical and non-technical roles proudly mention all the programming languages they know or have tried their hands-on. The hope to the accretion of these skills makes the candidates look like digital natives. While it’s clear that technical skills are important in many sectors, obsessive use of these skills in your resume can put off the hiring managers.

Tech candidates often tend to lack the core skills that employers look for. If the software development positions involve even a bit of Java programming, the recruiters expect you to have a thorough knowledge of Java. What differentiates good employees from great ones is their ability to work in a team.

Most hiring managers judge the candidate based on the qualities of soft skills, collaborative approach, ability to learn and adapt quickly. If you possess any of these qualities, you must mention it in your resume. You may have an excellent knowledge in non-technical areas like history, literature, poetry or philosophy. It’s a common misconception that tech company doesn’t care about these skills. A lot of companies and hiring managers do.

The soft skills do not necessarily mean the communication skills. It also includes the knowledge of literature, poetry, history, arts and other relevant fields. Every job seeker should have some or other human-based skills to bag a job. The collective work experience often leads to developing skills beyond the technical requirements of the company.

You can easily figure out your skills by following these four steps:


  • Identify the biggest project you have ever worked on in your previous job or the college.
  • Mention the biggest challenges that you could overcome in that project.
  • If you were stuck with some obstacles in those projects, what were the skills that you should have had to overcome those challenges? Some of them may be interpersonal and some may be technical.
  • Find the simplest way to describe those skills as abilities. Make sure that the skills are relevant to the requirements listed for the specific job.
