I'm creating a profile for a large Financial company. I'm currently working on adding my work history and skills.

There is a section for skills next to each position I've held. My question is what if I used the same skills for my two most recent jobs? Should I just copy and paste? Would that look bad?

For my most recent job I have listed:

Knowledgeable of (company's core systems)
Solid Customer Service Skills
Team Focused
Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Strong investigative and analytical skills
Adaptable and Resourceful
Strong Organizational Skills
Able to learn new systems

Then for my next job I would have:

Proficient in (company's core systems)
Solid Customer Service Skills
Team Focused
Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Strong investigative and analytical skills
Adaptable and Resourceful
Strong Organizational Skills
Able to learn new systems


There's other skills I have listed...

One position I held was office management so I know I can put management skills, but the rest is pretty much the same. Like using MS Office Suite etc...

Does this look all right?

I would look up some of the descriptors they use for these skill sets on some of the open positions they have and mimic them.

Application portals often use keyword indicators to screen applicants. The closer you are to what they call things, the better your chances are you'll make the keyword cut.
