- Skills Summary
This section enables you to highlight the skills most relevant to a particular employer or for a particular role. As a new graduate you may list your major skills fairly simply as in the examples below. After having worked in several roles and organisations, it is more effective to summarise your capabilities, giving some information about when and where the skills were used and developed. This is a Skills Based or Functional resume and avoids repetition and too much detail in the Employment section.
