Since language skills are closely related to communications skills, I frequently include language skills in communications-skills bullet points:
Exceptional communicator who is fluent in English, proficient in French, and conversant in Russian.
Articulate communicator with language proficiencies in English, French, and beginning Portuguese.
Outstanding interpersonal communicator; fully bilingual and bicultural in English and Spanish.
Polished written and verbal communicator who is fluent in English, Mandarin, and Taiwanese.
Bi-lingual speaker with background rich in culturally diverse experiences and fluencies in English and Cantonese
Computer skills are either required or are a plus in most jobs, so it’s rarely a bad idea to include a bullet point about computer skills. The exception is the information-technology professional, for whom computer/technical skills are so important that they should comprise their own section – on the first page of the resume, not buried at the end:
Computer-literate performer proficient on Windows and Mac platforms operating in Word, Excel, and Outlook.
Computer-proficient performer skilled in MS Office, Casino Track, and Simply Accounting software applications.
Computer-literate performer with extensive technical proficiency covering wide range of software applications, including ADP products, Microsoft Office components, and multiple accounting and productivity modules.

If travel and/or relocation are required for a given job, it’s a good idea to address those requirements in your Summary/Profile section.
Senior-level sales professional who offers career path reflecting progressive responsibility and sales performance, along with willingness to relocate and travel.
You’ll find more bullet points related to relocation and travel later in the chapter.
