Thanks for sharing! Love this and a great reminder as I missed some of these things on my resume! And I update it frequently.

Definitely agree with this thread...especially if you volunteered and had a role or responsibility to lead a team or project. Leadership skills that show you are trustworthy, reliable, creative, organized, etc. can help a candidate to stand out in a very positive way. This shows others interest in stepping up to take on a role where you are a key contributor...these are all important to highlight in a resume.

I totally agree Mia. I was a volunteer for Dress for Success for several years. After a few months I was appointed Lead Image Consultant. A few years later I stepped into the role of Career Counselor. Both were excellent opportunities to develop skills in leadership, coaching, counseling and training. They are included on my LinkedIn profile as well as other volunteer roles such as a non-profit Board appointment.

Love the idea of adding this to our Linkedin profiles! I'll be the first one to confess I am too shy in tooting my own horn so to speak.

Hi Preeti, I Iove your name! One of my best friends spells her name Preety. ❤ Your feelings are very common among women. If we do not toot our own horn, who will? Give yourself the credit you deserve. Seeing our accomplishments in writing is a huge energy boost. I encourage you to go brag on yourself!

Hi Rhonda, Thank you for list. I forgot I created a simple user guide for PM's and Business Analysts explaining how to logon, and review monthly notices for the JIRA application. I will add that to my training bullet.

I love this idea but I would totally end up with too much on my resume! These are questions that a hiring person can and should ask too

A thought about that Katelyn is maybe pick 1-2 of these things that most align with the job you are applying for. I know that means people might constantly be updating their resume but it could be worth it in a tight job market. I agree about a good interviewer asking about some of these.

Great list Rhonda, thanks for sharing. I would add that these things can and should also go on your LinkedIn profile. There is actually sections for some of these.
