Focus on the whole job, and not part of it: As a Building Surveyor, your main job is to create, look after and improve buildings. It is highly recommended that you mention the key skills and abilities for all the aspects of your job, and not focusing on a single part. For example, conducting surveys is a major part of the job so, naturally, it requires considerable attention on your CV. However, time management, attention to detail, ability to produce technical documentation, and producing designs using design tools are some other critical aspects of the job that you shouldn’t forget about mentioning on your CV.
