Listing Travel On Your Resume

Kent Nolen

Q. I’ve travelled a lot for work and pleasure.  Does listing travel on my resume make me more marketable?

A. Anything you place on your resume should be professionally focused, so if you are considering listing an extended vacation to Santorini, think again.  However, speaking to professional travel and working with diverse audiences can be very powerful on a resume.

Here are some examples:

• Traveled to Beijing and South Africa to secure multi-year contracts worth a total of US$6M.

• Traveled to Bangalore, India to rally development team and ensure a key project was delivered ahead of an aggressive deadline.

You may also consider speaking to extensive personal travel (i.e. gap year, etc.) in your cover letter.  Even in that case, make sure to expressly outline how that experience bolsters your qualifications and makes you a strong fit for the role you are pursuing.
