Top Skills you should mention on your resume.

Skill mentioned on your resume is the key to unlock your dream job. The career that you wish to have depends on the right skills mentioned in your resume. You have to mention those extraordinary skills you have to get the recruiter‘s attention in the stack of thousands of resume applied for the job.

We usually add skills on our resume that are most relevant to our academics or our extra-curricular activities. But sometimes, we miss out on those key skills which might impress the recruiter and make our resume stand-out.

To make your resume awesome, you need to add the top-notch skills. Your talents and interests must be easily identifiable to get the recruiter’s attention. To do so, you need to first look at the job description to understand what the recruiter wants the perfect candidate to have. You need to identify the keywords and describe your achievements in your resume to showcase that you are perfect for the job.

To increase your chances of getting the dream job, you should look out to include the following skills on your resume.



Communication helps to convey the message and to build relationships, both personal as well as professional. So, why not mention this in your resume as well, because having the ability to communicate with others in professional terms at work, at a good pitch and making them believe in what you say, is a win-win skill.


For few, leadership comes naturally. For others, it may be tough. To make people believe in you and your decisions is what will make you a good leader. Having good leadership quality requires good Knowledge, Flexibility, and Tenderness to adapt to all upcoming circumstances.


Problem Solving is also an important skill that should be added to your resume. This skill requires us to inculcate a few other skills like CREATIVITY, EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE, DECISION MAKING. All the problems you come across won’t be the same always or might not have a pre-determined solution for it, so to solve such problems, you need to develop the ability to look for possible appropriate solutions in a very shorter period of time.


Not all problems end with a single solution. So, in general, while solving problems we look at the overall aspect of the problem and come up with multiple solutions and selecting the best and the most appropriate solution is called Decision Making.


We have always been asked to make time table, “divide your time according to your work”, but we were never told about it as a skill. Time Management is very important because when you’re working, you need to manage several things at a time and produce efficient results you’ll need to manage time appropriately.


Being creative is like being new. People today search for new and advanced things every day. They imagine new things daily and being creative is putting those imaginations into reality. Even though this skill is owned by everyone but only a few know how to implement it.

So, you have got a glimpse of the few skills you should have on your resume. Although, add these skills on your resume only when you are meticulous in it. All the best for your upcoming Interview.
