Delete obsolete skill references
This may seem obvious – i.e. why confuse the recruiter by list a skill you no longer use or one that’s fallen out of demand in the market or is not pertinent to the job. But some job candidates don’t want to eliminate skills or experiences if doing so will show an employment gap. In this case, we recommend talking generally about the skill and more specifically about the achievement (the opposite of the advice above). For instance, instead of emphasizing the mainframe programming languages you’ve worked with, focus on the applications you built and their value to the business.
