IF YOU CANT TALK ABOUT IT, DON’T WRITE ABOUT IT


As a recruiter more often than not we see skills in the technical section of a resume and we sometimes wonder if that candidate has actually worked all of those skills.


Qualifying a candidate based on their resume and skills is an important part of a recruiters job, while most recruiters are not going to be experts on every skill that is listed on a resume, as a recruiter it is our job to make sure that we match the skills on the resume with the required skills of the position that we are recruiting for.


As a candidate for a position and submitting your resume to that position, it is very important that you are able to talk to the skills that you have listed.


It is important that the skills you have listed are shown in the positions that you held and how you used them. A lot of time can be wasted on the recruiter side if we have to reach out to the candidate to ask them to update their resume to show how they used those particular skills.


In other words, don’t put a skill on your resume if you have only been familiar with or have knowledge of, unless you state that in your skills list. When you don’t do this, the recruiter will spend more time than necessary to qualify you and in the end, if you can’t talk about it, don’t write about it.
