To all the writers out there, what are the advantages of using your Wattpad credentials on a resume, particularly as a teenager/young adult?
-Used Wattpad as a mentoring platform to help other writers with their work by proofreading, editing, and helping them brainstorm ideas
-Have been increasingly active since early 2018 by writing on the forums and engaging in multiple (3) Wattpad group chats with writers-turned-friends
-Composed a total of four public works accumulating about 6,000 reads altogether
-Entered community competitions on the site
-Interacted with and received feedback from a Wattpad-based published author
-Written journalistic style articles/stories on the forums, thus receiving feedback from friends and frequent readers
I don’t know if this is in any way legit or if it would be a wise idea to at least use this data as a supposed extracurricular, but these are things that I have accomplished on my time on Wattpad, and as a teenager building up my professional career, it might be of some use.
What are your thoughts?
