I enjoy working with young professionals in my resume practice. As part of the information gathering process for creating their resumes, I ask them if they worked on any team projects or major research assignments. I also ask about campus affiliations, volunteer work, part-time jobs. A lot of them are surprised. They never thought any of those things mattered. They aren’t “real jobs.” Truth is; a skill’s a skill whether you were paid to learn it or not. If it pertains to what the employer needs, then demonstrate you have the skill. Don’t dwell on where/how you learned it. “Sell” the fact that you have it.
