    I'm in a constant state of improving my resume. I have a short list of "advantages" that I can bring to an office in my profession. I currently have this under a heading called "abilities", hhowever, that really isn't the best word. The list includes things that show efficiency and accuracy and diversity, that many I'm competing with probably wouldn't have or think to express. Can anyone think of a better heading?

    I'd use the word assets - professional & to the point.

    Ok- these are great! I can use some in the wording that I'm not using for the heading.

    As always- Thank you!!

    Good Luck in your job quest! I'm thinking about going back to work in Sept. So I will be using some of these words too! LOL-RM

    How about "core competencies"?

    Or if you're feeling extra confident, and it seems appropriate to the job, "competitive advantages"?

    Words, I can deal with. A difficult child, well... it's not as easy. LOL! :tongue:

    Why limit it to a word? Use a heading such as "what I can bring to this position" or "what I can do for your business".
