List: LinkedIn Skills

When preparing your LinkedIn profile, make sure to include a list of your technical skills, then endorse skills of your connections and/or ask others for endorsements*.

Here’s a list of some skills you could add to your LinkedIn skills (or, if they are framework-specific, find an equivalent in your language). This is not an exhaustive list — just a stub and written from the perspective of folks with Rails/JS background to give you an idea. Add whatever methodology or language you've used!

Programming languages and software

List the programming languages and software your program or self-studies covered, for instance:

  • Web Development
  • Web Applications
  • Software Development
  • ActiveRecord
  • Front-end Development
  • Back-end Development
  • Full-stack Development
  • Ruby
  • Ruby on Rails
  • PostgreSQL
  • SQLite
  • SQL
  • Sinatra
  • JavaScript
  • ES6
  • React.js
  • Redux.js
  • Node.js
  • Express
  • CSS
  • HTML
  • Git
  • Github if you deployed your projects:
  • Heroku
  • Netlify
  • Firebase and if you are interested in accessibility:
  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
  • Accessibility


  • Test-Driven Development
  • Object-Oriented Programming (OOP)
  • MVC
  • Technical Writing
  • Debugging

Soft skills

only if you have space — apparently no recruiter would be looking for soft skills

  • Constructive Feedback
  • Teamwork
  • Project Management
  • Public Speaking
  • Problem Solving
  • Collaborative Problem Solving

*apparently, endorsements are just a vanity thing and do not help with getting noticed by a recruiter; still, not all people who will view your profile are recruiters
