Yes - Skills. They’re an important part of you as a prospective employee, and therefore an important part of your resume.
the end of your resume you should always have a section on skills. What
kind of skills are we talking about? Not ‘research skills’ or
‘organizational skills’ - you may have those and that’s important but
everyone says they’ve got great organizational skills. Also, Microsoft
Word is not a skill anymore. Only list Excel if you have expert
knowledge of it.
want to know specifics - do you know how to use NGP or VAN? Did you use
Salsa or Convio to send email blasts? Did you manage the Google AdWord
account for the campaign? These are the sorts of skills political
employers are looking for and the kind they would love to see on your
resume. Don’t lie and say you know how to use NGP when you don’t, but
make sure you list these toolsets if you know them.
