You asked: "What skill level should I have with an operating system or
software program before I include it on my resume?"

I struggled with this one myself when I last updated my resume -- I didn't
want to cheat my chances and make it appear that I was less software
literate than I am, but neither did I want to overstate my proficiency with
certain programs. I ended up separating my software experience into two
categories on the resume -- Substantial Experience, and Limited Experience.
This should let a potential employer know that I am proficient in Word and
Paint Shop Pro, for example, but have less experience with Access. Works
for me -- hope you find a solution that works for you too.
