Should I mention a Udacity nanodegree on my resume?

Going to be starting a nanodegree soon and was wondering if, after completion, on my resume I should list just include the skills I learned from the course or if I should also mention that I completed the nanodegree somewhere.

    It will look nice in the section where you mentioned your cat breed.

    A) This should be reposted as a poll.
    B) To be honest, I look down on people who reference a ‘nanodegree’ on their LinkedIn/resume. I interpret it as a sign of poor judgement for including it (your skills are what actually matters).

      I agree with Docker/Sqlinject. And it’s a bit sad 😢 too.

      Maybe that's why you work at a dying whale company. Learn to be a bit more open minded. I know quite a few people working at FAANG with a nanodegree and some other major

      - Change “Work at” to “Helped found”
      - I haven’t been at Docker since 2017
      - I’ve worked at Google and am currently at another FAANG

      But go ahead and attempt to further invalidate my opinion.

    I personally think it is a good thing if it aligns with your goals and personal narrative. Worst case, it won’t matter to me.

  • I list a couple of coursera courses, not even nanodegree, and recruiters contact me all the time.

    Nano degrees are not degrees. Do you list pluralsight courses on your resume?

    It’s not going to hold weight really. Just use the skills to create projects or do work at your job that involves what you learn as a showcase. I think it might show only that your motivated to learn but that’s about it.

    List it but don’t make a big deal of it. Maybe in a courses section you can make a mention of it. If you have it flaunt it. You never know who might find it relevant to a position they have open.

    But if someone doesnt have any sw experience, will this get you to the interview?

    I hope you’re distinguishing between a nanodegree and an online certification course like in coursera. I would absolutely list the latter on LinkedIn and maybe in resume if there’s space
