Then here's 5 Skills That All Employers Want to See on Your CV/Resume today. Most anyway!
1. Communication Skills
Most employers want to know that you have good basic listening, speaking and writing skills. The better you are at communicating things, whether verbally or in written format, the better you are for making their business run smoothly and productively. But you also need to be a good listener too. Being able to listen to and understand basic instructions or even complicated ones. Those that do are usually preferred over those that don't, even if they have lots of skills and experience in something else!
2. Leadership / Management Skills
And most employers want to know that you are a goal driven person that can lead, motivate and maintain a team to steer it towards meeting and achieving its goals. So you'll need to be someone who thrives in an environment of people all doing different tasks. You'll need to be someone that can confidently motivate and mobilise people and someone that builds up and encourages and coaches others to meet those standards required by that or any employee.
3. Planning / Organising Skills
Most employers want to employ someone that has good planning and organisational skills. Someone that is a results driven achiever that has a record for being an exemplary planner and has super great organisation skills as well as a high level of detail orientation - someone that puts a lot of thought into planning things. So you should definitely talk about all the things you've planned and arranged in your life on your CV/Resume.
4. Problem Solving / Creativity & Reasoning
If you're an innovative problem solver and someone that can generate tangible on the spot solutions to problems that pop up and are able to resolve people's complaints quickly and fairly, then you will be someone that is valued higher in that workplace than people that have already worked there for years and don't have those skills! And if you can prove you have these on your resume you should definitely add them in.
5. Team Player
One of the most important and sought after skills every employer is looking for is someone that is a great team player. At least for those where being a team player is important. And you'll need to be a resourceful team player that can excel at building up trusting relationships both with potential and existing clients, customer and his/her own colleagues in the work place too.
