How do I add skills to an Executive Assistant resume?

Review the job posting closely.

Go through the Executive Assistant posting you're applying to, and identify hard skills the company is looking for. For example, skills like Administration, Executive Support and Diary Management are possible skills. These are skills you should try to include on your resume.

Add industry skills like Office Administration and Administrative Assistance.

Add other common skills from your industry - such as Executive Administrative Assistance, Customer Service and Microsoft Access - into your resume if they're relevant.

Add skills into your work experience.

Incorporate skills - like Human Resources (HR), Sales and Management - into your work experience too. This shows hiring managers that you have practical experience with these tools, techniques and skills.

Show your ability to multitask.

Since you're going to be interfacing with different teams and people, Executive Assistant hiring managers expect you to be able to multitask, so it's a good idea to emphasize this skillset in your resume.

Emphasize accomplishments that involved a team.

Teamwork is a common competency hiring managers look for, particularly for Executive Assistant roles, so include at least 1-2 examples of accomplishments that involved leading a team, or collaborating with others to complete a project.

Use the exact job title.

Try to add the exact job title, Executive Assistant, somewhere into your resume to get past resume screeners. See the infographic for how to do this.
