When it comes to resume skills, soft skills are out, hard skills are in!
Soft skills are not nearly as compelling and advantageous as hard skills in the eyes of today’s hiring managers. When a hiring manager is reading your resume they are looking to see if you have the technical skills to get the job done. Everyone can put that they are organized, a team player, or a leader.
Show your employer you have what it takes to tackle the everyday tasks that will be needed of you. Do you know how to use Microsoft office including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint? What about CRM software? Donor retention software? You can also include what social media platforms you have worked with, what design software you are proficient in, and more. Put these skills into sections with those that correspond with them. For example, creative skills will go together and HR skills will go together. You’re now one step closer to a great resume!
