You are the King/Queen of social media. Your friends come to you with questions on how to effectively use Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. You may even hold small impromptu lunch seminars on the benefits of using social media. This is all well and good, but is this really something a potential employer wants to see plastered across your resume?
Being social media savvy is one thing. Screaming it from the rooftops is quite another. Claiming too much social media know-how on your resume can give off the impression that you spend countless number of hours in front of a computer honing your craft and not doing much else.
When speaking to your social media skills on your resume, you may want to temper it just a bit. Be very specific as to what skills you posses. When you speak in generalities, you have the tendency to ramble. Reel it in and get specific about how your social media skills, in addition to everything else you bring to the table, could potentially be a benefit to their organization.
