Can you list writing on Hubpages as writing experience or employment on a resume?
Has anyone done this?
I haven't actually done it, but if I was applying for a job that involved writing or communications I would include my Hubpages work provided there wasn't anything offensive. I don't think HP can't count as employment though; just experience.
And if your "real name" is linked to HP, a prospective employer will probably find your profile through the crazy, stalker-ish background checking that they do, anyway!
I think it counts as experience since it's not regular employment with specified hours and hourly income or salary. But the things you write for hubpages can be used as "writing clips", which are published articles. This is great for future jobs that require proof of being published or publishers who want clips and writing samples as part of their consideration for accepting your manuscripts.
Absolutely. It is all experience anything you can do to improve your resume should be done. You might also take copies of your work in a seperate folder, you can then present this at interview if you are thoroughly confident with it's content.
Absolutely, Simon. I actually have listed HubPages on my resume or, alternatively, my CV. However, there are many things to consider. First and foremost, listing your experience on HubPages on your resume should be relevant to the position you are seeking. Next, consider the quality of your hubs and the totality of the work on HubPages. HubPages can be listed in the experience, skills, activities, hobbies, and interest sections of a resume. Pick the one section where it will be most valuable. Today I posted a hub entitled "How To List HubPages on Your Resume or CV." You may find it useful.

I can only speak for myself but I think I've got a case of the Hubpages Spread! What's that you say? The Hubpages spread is the 10 lbs you put on after spending super long hours writing and posting hubs- plus editing old ones. I've developed the baaaaaad habit of scarfing down food while at my work...
