Describe Your Computer Skills

Finally, the last block is for defining your computer skills. You can add various programs’ names here and describe your level (whether it is basic or professional). You may use descriptive words that the template suggests: “familiar,” “knowledge,” “proficient,” “intermediate,” or “beginner”). Outline details about all programs you use and can work with.

step 10 describe your computer skills filling out blank resume template

When you have created the document, it is important to save it on your laptop and name it correctly. You should not print your resume and bring it with you because, normally, hiring organizations review the printed version by themselves and already have a copy when you arrive at the interview. So, name your file in an appropriate manner so that potential employers could quickly identify you. For example, “First Name Last Name — Resume.”

It is also useful to always have your resume at hand (saved in your email inbox or anywhere as a link, so you can quickly pass it to someone who is interested in hiring you). You never know when an amazing job opportunity will wait for you, and a request to send a resume can be totally unexpected. So, it is always a good idea to be prepared. Even if you are not looking for a job right now, it is a smart move to keep your resume updated just in case.
