I’m on Facebook and Instagram, and I know how to use Twitter and Snapchat, so I’m up with the trends.

What the Hiring Manager Assumes

You can manage several social media accounts, build brand voices for each one, read and analyze data, and run paid marketing campaigns. Today, social media management is respected as its own career field so it shouldn’t be listed on your resume unless you have real work experience using it.

Language

You studied abroad in Barcelona, and while there, you learned to converse in Spanish. You’ve got no use for it now though, so you’re rusty at best. Still, you figure it’s worth listing on your resume.

What the Hiring Manager Assumes

You’re fluent. Your competence level goes above and beyond saying “Hello, how are you, my name is.” If needed, you could carry on an entire conversation in your second language—and you could write a report and email in Spanish as well.
