Skills (including transferable skills) are an important feature of any CV. Indeed, some people claim that some employers only read skills. This is far from the case in reality, but skills remain important nevertheless.
Tip: Yes, you may have skills, and you may even have the right skills. However, selling those skills is actually a specialist skill in itself!
There are actually a lot more considerations play than most people realise.
The skills you include need to be targeted, and they need to be woven into your CV naturally rather than artificially, or is just one big list.
Also get the balance right with the right number of skills. You need to ensure you include enough of the right skills - don't undersell yourself - At the same time you shouldn't overdo it either. Your CV needs to be balanced rather than one big list of skills.
