Designers

What do you list in your “skills” section on your resume? I never know how vague or broad those should be

I focus more on program skills or a skill that is a plus to the job. Think of skills your title isn’t usually known for. Do you know a bit of HTML or CSS? Can you edit in Premier? Are you able to illustrate? In college they asked us (or my class at least) to put skills such as: branding, ideating, layout, etc. However, I feel like these are a bit repetitive. Does someone really need to be told a Designer can design print ads, business cards, and billboards?

I’ve got all my programs and also design skills like illustration etc. In addition to technical skills I include something fun, like “witty banter” and “standard driver”
