Resume Specialists: Can you help me translate my work experience into a skills list?
So my old resume had the subject line, Detail Experience. Here is what I put in it
• Rite Aid: I learned how to unload pallets, stock shelves with products, face items, do “go backs”, clean and mop floors, close and count registers, provide excellent customer service.
• McDonalds: I learned how to pick up the pace and speed it up at this fast food industry, all while serving an accurate, quality fast food. Responsibilities included batch cooking, dumping trash and hot oil, fixing the air vents, constantly cleaning, mopping, sweeping and wiping down tables, loading in food and food products and check for expiration dates
• SoHo Lab: I learned about a lot of diverse people working at this exotic shoe store in Downtown. Organizing shoes in an artistic way, pulling out multiple pairs of shoes at a time for multiple customers, cleaning duties and loading shoes in were part of the job responsibilities here. Depositing the companies earnings into the bank, loaning and keeping track of shoes to local business shops were also part of my responsibilities.
• Quiznos: Keeping a clean and friendly environment while serving quality fast food is what Quiznos was all about. Job responsibilities included washing dishes, throwing trash, cutting meat, cheese and vegetables, tracking inventory and stock, provide excellent customer service, always smiling and enjoying the job, leaving customers satisfied. Learned about the importance of up sales and upgrading meals. Held the key for the register. Told customers about new events and showcase product knowledge.
I’m trying to compress all this information so that it will fit under a simple SKILLS category.
Also, I have professional awards but it’s only journalism based, and I also have experience in multi-media with video shooting and editing for a fashion designer. However I don’t think it is relevant into applying for a cafe/barista or dishwasher position. All the help you can offer would be super appreciated.
