Should Microsoft Office be included as a skill on your resume?

Don’t include it.

YOU WILL LOOK INCOMPETENT.

Including it is equivalent in this day an age to saying:

  • Recently installed and used the ‘Uber app’
  • Recently switched from PC to Mac
  • Know how to ‘force quit’ programs when they freeze

Follow this rule:

If the ‘skill’ is ubiquitous. It is not a skill!

I hope this helps
