@AIQ Hey, what's up?
 
AIQ
@ColleenV Hi! How are you?
 
@AIQ Doing Ok. How're things with you?
 
AIQ
Much better, have been dealing with something awful the whole year ... Anyways, have been wanting to ask you something ...
Do you remember I asked questions about how I should add my ELL contributions to my resume ... What I did was in my summary section I added it as written communication skills.
> Strong written communication skills acquired through writing high-quality project reports and briefing materials, producing monthly newsletters, actively editing works of ESL learners, and providing writing advice on ESL forums.
Now, I have a section called "Professional Development and Certificates" where I additional training and courses I took to enhance my research skills ...
I saw somewhere that in such a section you can add affiliations, so "Professional Development, Certificates, and Affiliations"
Wondering if talking about my ELL contributions there would make sense ...
but I think it would make more sense for someone who is directly working for SE? like a site moderator or community moderator?
@ColleenV
 
ELL is more volunteer work in my opinion. An affiliation might be serving on a board or some more formal relationship
 
AIQ
My starred comment for Snailplane from January is still there ... haha
 
1:41 PM
I think it has a place on your resume but maybe not in that section
 
AIQ
@ColleenV Ah I see, so maybe better in a "Additional Experience" section?
I have that one with my university club experiences - which were all voluntary
 
I would put it in with your clubs
 
AIQ
Yeah that makes sense, someone else gave me the same advice, but I wanted to check with you
I kinda feel a lot of the people I knew here on ELL isn't there anymore ... I feel hesitant to contribute now
 
:) Well, my advice is warrantied for life. If it is unsatisfactory, you get a full refund

Yes, snail deleting her account has made me really sad.
 
AIQ
Are you around though?
I see your comments here an there ...
 
1:45 PM
Sort of. I hang around until something makes it unfun, then take a break
 
AIQ
There are some nice people on Workplace ...
 
Workplace is a pretty good community, but sometimes the topics are a drag on my good mood
 
AIQ
haha, it sure can be sometimes ... hope your family is well ...
I remember you were living on the countryside?
How's that going?
 
We're doing well. It looks like we're going to gave to euthanize ate oldest dog this week.
She's been partially paralyzed since she was 3 years old and she's got arthritis in one ankle now and hip dysplasia
She's having trouble getting around and we think she's hurting although she doesn't show it
It's probably better to not wait too much longer
 
AIQ
Ah that's painful ...
and sad at the same time ...
 
1:53 PM
We're traveling to visit family over Thanksgiving and we don't want to board the younger dog alone without some time for him to adjust to the older dog being gone
Well, we gad a dog that had cancer and we waited too long. That is much worse. The guilt for that will stick with me forever
 
AIQ
Never heard of that to be honest ...
but hope this time it's smoother
Is Mari-lou running for mod?
 
Anyhow, good luck with your job search. I've got to do some work or I might be searching too ;)
 
AIQ
Sure, thanks for dropping in ...
 
@AIQ Are you thinking of running for mod? You should...
 
AIQ
@ColleenV No I have been away for a long time ...
I want to ease back into contributing regularly and then maybe someday
 
2:01 PM
I don't think you should let that stop you. The only real considerations are whether you know how the community works and you can commit to visiting the site regularly
Well and you have the desire to do it
