Jobs and education are not the only way that people learn and use skills. People use skills at all kinds of experiences, including hobbies, community service and volunteering, even parenting and family life. Make sure that the skills you learned at these "other" experiences are not overlooked by adding skills from those experiences to your profile!
To easily enter skills from "other" experiences
- On the "CV" page of the app, click on the "Add skills" button, select "Other" from the pop-up menu.
- Next select a category such as "Family Life" or "Arts", or select "Other" if you cannot find the area you are looking for. Then select a few relevant keywords for things that you did during that experience and click on the "Next" button.
(don't worry if you can't find the exact categories or keywords you would like - the keywords will only help you to add specific skills to this experience later)
- Finally, indicate how you would like to describe the experience in your profile, and enter when you started and ended this experience (or whether it continues). Click the "Save" button to save the experience to your profile and begin adding skills to it.
Congratulations! You are now ready to ADD SKILLS to your "Other" experience!
