Knowing which skills you should feature on your resume can be the most challenging part of the entire job-search process. In order to land an interview, it helps to know which skills employers are looking for.
That’s where the power of the new, free Skill My Resume tool comes in.
Jobseekers are guided through the resume-building and skills-alignment process. Just provide some basic information and Skill My Resume does the hard part for you: suggesting skills that you should include on your resume based on your job history.
Jobseekers can use Skill My Resume to build a resume in two steps:
1) Create a basic resume, using your job history, education, contact information, etc.
2) If there’s a specific job you have your eye on, Skill My Resume will then customize the resume by helping you identify the specific skills you have that are relevant to the desired job and required by the employer.
3) Once you’ve finished your resume, you can download it in Word or PDF. It’s easy—and free. Let’s get started.
The Rework America Alliance and Skillful, initiatives of the Markle Foundation, partnered with Emsi to bring this valuable tool to the aid of jobseekers. Skill My Resume is a major component of the Alliance’s overarching goal to accelerate the equitable hiring of workers into good jobs and to help job seekers better articulate the skills they have in a way that aligns with the skills employers are looking for.
