Hello ladies. I’m updating my resume and I don’t know what “skills” to put under there. It’s a position in the digital marketing field. so far I have:
Microsoft Office Suite
Mac iWork Suite
SEO & SEM
Public Relations writing
I don’t know what else to put. I’m a quick learner and love to work under pressure. I just want them to know I have good skills… ideas?

do you have photoshop experience? If so, I would put that too.

I work in digital PR, and I list sites I’m most familiar with as long as quantifiable results. So instead of saying “Twitter” as a skill, I give a specific campaign and give the Twitter stats for that.
A big thing right now are visual sites, like tumblr and Pinterest, so perhaps include if you’ve worked with those.

I work in SEM/SEO so I think I can help. Do you have experience with any specific tools or programs? Kenshoo, Marin, Dart, AdWords, AdCenter, DoubleClick, etc? Are you Google AdWords Certified?
What’s the specific job role? I think I could help if I know exactly what type of digital marketing you want to do!

yes, and i would also add webtrends and google analytics if you have any experience with those programs. though i must add, i am in digital marketing for the past 8 years and biggest contributor to getting the jobs i did has been showing that i can think strategically and i am analytically capable…as opposed to being able to use any one tool.

I am not sure if you need to list Microsoft Office (warning: legal feild, not marketing, listen to the marketing folks before me)…I assume everyone knows how to use Excell, PowerPoint, Word and the like because I don’t think you can function in the business world without that basic skill set. You want to show them what you bring beyond the basics they assume you can do already.

Thank you ladies! I did include a few stats about a social media plan I did with a previous internship, and included experience with google ad words (though not certified), and other industry-specific tools I use on a daily basis and have extensive training for them.
