How long has it been since you reworked your resume? Have you thought about how generic you sound when you state that you have “skills” in certain areas without demonstrating the context? When the context of the skill is left out, it’s as if the skill doesn’t really exist. Maybe it’s time to begin rethinking the resume and use actual experiences to relate that particular skill so that the Hiring Manager will consider you as a “whole” person, not just some “zombie” or “robot”.
