It's hard to be objective and write about yourself when you're putting together a resume. You can easily forget things you're skilled at because they have become second nature to you. That's why Rita Friedman, a US-based career coach, suggests you scan through a bunch of job postings and look at the required skills. Friedman recommends you specifically highlight the parts that make you say "Oh, I do that all the time!" There are probably at least a few things you forgot about.
