Hello, I appreciate any recommendations,

I am currently unemployed and wondering how to add content to my resume that I've accomplished while unemployed. I own the resume workbook but didn't see an answer (perhaps I missed it). I am presenting to a professional org soon, and additionally expect to achieve a certification. Both are directly relevant to any job applications. What should be the header? I'm also wondering how to accomplish the same thing on LinkedIn. I know many people put "freelance consultant" - and in my dreams I would be able to honestly make this claim. But I cannot truthfully say that at this time. The presentation is unpaid. I'm looking for jobs as a presenter or trainer or where at least these demonstrated skills are highly valued. I need them on my resume and profile. What header for these and possibly other accomplishments to separate my name-address info and my most recent job?

Thanks for any ideas, Jeanne

Hi techmgr, 

thanks for posting. I'm also be interested in how the MT community answers this question.

In the meantime, I found this post with a similar question and they had some interesting suggestions, https://www.manager-tools.com/forums/listing-time-unemployed-previous-wo... .
