A skills-powered resume template
This template will give us the opportunity to further analyze the skills topic for your resume.
Some think the skills section is an optional part of a resume. We think that it is not always true.
First, this part is interesting as it can enhance your summary and experience. And that is even more true if you lack relevant experience. Also, in some specific fields (like technology, or design), this should be a crucial part of your CV. Finally, skills will make you a unique candidate. They will give hiring managers a better understanding of who you really are. So, why would you skip this unique opportunity that will give you a better chance to get noticed?
Now, you need to understand how soft skills differ from hard skills. Hard skills are technical skills that are specific to a job task. On the other hand, soft skills relate to personal traits (attitude and personality).
Make a list of your different skills and strengths. At the end of this self-assessment process, select the skills you feel are most important for the job.
This professionally designed template will be perfect for those who want to make a skills-powered resume. It showcases a full-width blue header for your name, job title, personal information, and summary. You can even display your photo inside a nice central diamond placeholder.
Below the header goes the main information. More precisely, it is a 3-column layout on a light gray background. The first column (on the left) takes the half-width of the page and highlights your experience and education. The other (half) part uses 2 columns to feature your skills with their respective description.
