Listing Career Development Work and Training On Your Resume

Kent Nolen

Q. I’ve taken several Coursera.com courses while I have been out of work. Should I list these on my resume? A. Expanding your professional skill set and honing your expertise is an excellent way to maintain your competitive edge while out of work.

For the most part, I suggest you list on-line courses like those offered by Coursera.com and Codeacadamy.com on your LinkedIn profile and keep your resume to degrees and highly relevant “on-site” training. Even with LinkedIn, don’t overdo it. If you’ve a lot of courses, select a handful of the training courses that you feel are most relevant or that highlight your knowledge in especially-in-demand areas.

When you do list career development and training on your resume, it's a good idea to separate the activities from your degrees. Consider placing them in a separate Career Development section. That way your degree(s) don't get lost among less critical content.
