“What skills do you have?” 🔨

The answer to this hotly anticipated question is always a VERB.

If it's not a verb, then it's not a skill.

This question is not asking you what you are like.

That is a different question with a different response.

Become fast friends with your skills verbs.

You will need them repeatedly in your resume, cover letter, thank you notes, networking, interviewing, and negotiating.

Here's some great examples of how to list skills on your resume and CV

** I design websites that increase traffic

** I analyze cash flow so we always have funds

** I defend my clients in and out of the courtroom

** I write original screenplays to entertain

** I craft unique jewelry to say I love you

What are your top 3 power verbs? 💪
