How to List Your Skills?

Only list relevant skills. If you’re applying for a position as an engineer, don’t brag about your marketing abilities. Instead, save the space to list the software and programming languages that you know. 
List around 5 Skills. Writing too many skills on your resume can be an overwhelming experience for the recruiter.
Include both hard and soft skills. Even if your profession seems to rely on soft skills more than hard skills.
Note your experience level. With each skill, specify whether you are a “beginner,” “expert,” or somewhere in between (using words like “intermediate” and “moderate”).
