Skills based resume?
Anyone have a good skills based resume template? Since a good amount of my experience comes from labbing its kind of hard to stick it in my work history as it would be lying and I refuse to lie on my resume. That being said its hard to get an interview unless you have what they are asking for. I think a skills based resume should give me a chance to brag about what I have done outside of the work environment and maybe get me some more interviews. I hate the skills based templates I have found on word or online. Anyone tried this approach? Should I just list a Home Lab section on my resume? I've tried putting it in the cover letter, but my buddy who's HR let me in on the dirty little secret, HR and hiring managers rarely read the cover letter until after they have decided to call you based on the resume.
