  • "Can analyze any given situation and make quick, firm decisions"


    "Can look at a situation and confidently make timely decisions"

  • Possesses sharp analytical skills and decisiveness

  • "Proven ability to confidently analyze situations and make decisions" or "Proven ability to ... (use variants Wendy suggested)"

    And then if this is a big/important part of the job, I would do 2 more things:
    1. In the Professional Experience section where you list the jobs you've had, I would have bullet points including this again (tailored to the work I did)... but worded so it's not just redundant.
    2. In the paragraph (or bullet list) of the cover letter where I talk about why I'm such a good fit, I would highlight specific and impressive things I've done using this ability.

  • These are all excellent answers. Just one small itty bitty piece of advice. Please use proper English on the resume and not computer language. Those tend to get trashed.

  • Rather than say you have the ability . listing the actual situation would be best. Real examples in which you used the described skill. Anyone can say they have a skill, you will be asked to give a situation where you did use it.
