Cv Help :l watch

    • Thread Starter

    I was just wondering, on a cv how would you talk about your skills? Would you list them or put them into a paragraph kind of thing? Can anyone give me any examples?
    Thank you

    I usually integrate them in the jobs that I've done and put things like "This job required the ability to be able to work well in a team and good social skills". I've seen some CV's that do have a personal description paragraph where the person talks about their skills in the paragraph or lists them but I don't know how widely it's used.

    There is a specific CV forum here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=339

    List it under your job title

    So for example, each bullet point should start with the type of skill that you have learned


    Supervising, training and motivating new members of staff etc
    Advised customers, resolving queries and handling complaints.
    Drafting and sorting documents etc
    Preparing files etc
    Assisted work colleagues etc
