Just what are resume skills?

I like to think about them like the keywords that you'd use in a Google search.

Rest assured; companies do sift through and rank candidates in a data base the way Google brings up search results for a pair of shoes on Amazon.

That’s what they use an ATS system for. Especially in larger organisations.

This can actually work in your favour. It tells you exactly what should be included on your resume.

If a job specifically asked for someone who could speak a certain language like French, that would be a key skill.

If a job asked for use of a certain software, that would be a key skill.

You need to study the job description to know what this job is asking for. If you’re not sure how to study a job post, each of the fashion resume examples on this site takes you through it.

Also note that there are 2 types of skills.

Hard/Technical skills: These are skills gained directly from doing a certain job. In the case of fashion- sketching, use of adobe illustrator, sewing, technical packs etc.

Soft/Transferable skills: These are skills that you learned in one role that will still be useful in another role. They can also be considered as personality traits. For example: easy to work with, follows directions, no ego, time management etc.

So do include both.
