I've been navigating and creating profiles on WikiTree for about four months now, and managed to link to about three other family trees. One reason I've been so predigious in such a short time (at least from my POV) is that I am presently between jobs, and am temporarily, financially-secure.
But now I need to depart from my temporary honeymoon, and get back to looking. Employers always want to know what you've been doing with your time, whether it was spent volunteering, going to school, or teaching yourself new skills online.
I think researching your family tree and trying to understand what genetic tests reveal and how to use them constitute a certain level of skill!
So if people could supply me with examples as to what skills they feel they've gained in the process of doing genealogy, I would be very grateful.
My experience might not be the same as your experience, but it would help me get more of an idea of what I things I should put in my master resume.
People don't always think about the skills they pick up when they do something for enjoyment (I could do genealogy research all day!) as opposed to job-training, employment experience, and education.
PS: Asking the question a different way ---For people who are employed, has your interest in genealogy translated into any skills you were able to apply to your job?
