Go through the Admissions Officer posting you're applying to, and identify hard skills the company is looking for. For example, skills like Research, Higher Education and International Admissions are possible skills. These are skills you should try to include on your resume.

Recruiters look for administrative skills on your Admissions Officer, so highlight your experience with key administrative functions, like organizing workshops or communicating with customers and employees.
