Q. Does my resume need to include a list of seminars, training and forums that I participated in?
A. No, you don’t necessarily need to list seminars, training and forums attended on your resume. That said, if your resume is just shy of two full pages and you need to fill out the space, highlight the important seminars attended or training you possess.
Any professional with more than a decade of experience is typically expected to have attended various events. If you’ve spoken at one, moderated a panel or something similar, then you should definitely highlight that.
