Resume: I have good working knowledge of a skill that I self-taught, but have no hands-on experience, can I list this as a skill on my resume?

Hmm.

If you taught yourself a skill - you must have practiced it somewhere?

  • Learning Spanish
  • Woodwork
  • Coding something in Javascript

Whatever it is you must have practiced it in some shape or form

So YES include it in your resume

However. I’m not a fan of skills that are demonstrated in the context of real world experience. So as a broader tip. Put those TOGETHER :slight_smile:
