There’s been a lot of resume talk at our house as YA has recently moved to another job at her company. She hasn’t actually shown me her current resume but I know she updates it regularly so that it’s up to date all the time. So it’s ready at a moment’s notice, if the need should arise!
Last week when we talked about sheets, K-Two said
“I got really good at making up mattresses for isolettes, bassinets, and cribs during my career – a skill no longer needed. And if really pushed, I could probably still change the sheets of an occupied bed.”
This got me to thinking how imminently practical (and refreshing) it would be to see solid skills like bed-making show up on a resume, instead of the boring vanilla stuff that you see on most resumes these days.
I started to think about the very practical skills that I could list on a resume.
- Can organize errands based on opening times and order efficiency
- Can coax almost any grumpy person into a smile
- Can get a pill down even the most recalcitrant kitty
- Can make 15 pies in one day
Any good skills for your resume this week?
