- Listing 'soft skills' on a resume 5 answers
Should I list previous work employment, skills or certificates not directly related to my career path (software development) on SE careers? I am relatively new in my career with lack of relevant work experience.
I initially enquired over at SE meta because I wanted to know what the 'algorithm' was in how our profiles were being chosen and listed to interested employers. However no-one could give me an answer, and the question was closed while I was pointed here.
I personally think these non technical skills are valuable experience so I list them on normal CVs and LinkedIn. However, SE gives the vibe of quite a 'technical' site, which I feel would attract 'technical' employers looking for candidates with specific language and technology experience.
As such, I feel if I was to list these 'non related' roles even among the related roles, an employer might look at my profile and think 'this person has missed the entire point of this site...'
