The Ultimate Guide to Including Your Side Hustles on Your Resume

It seems like everyone has side hustles these days. Whether it’s to make extra money, pursue an interest or passion, or to learn a new skill, it’s work that we choose to do on the “side” of our day jobs. Yet few people think to include their side hustle on their resume.

What is the Purpose of a Resume?

The goal of your resume is actually to get an interview. It’s a marketing tool used to capture the recruiter’s attention by showing how you, as a job-seeker. Here are four main ways to include your side hustle on your resume.

1. Include Your Side Hustle Like Any Other Job

The first option is to add your side hustle like you would any other job on your resume. List your title, the company you work for, dates of employment and  your job duties.

2. Include Your Side Hustle in a Separate Section

If you are concerned about misrepresenting yourself, you could title the main employment history section of your resume, “Relevant Experience and “Professional Experience".

3. Use a Functional or Combination Resume Format

The most common resume format is a chronological one. It lists your work history in a reverse timeline and includes a few bullet points elaborating on the responsibilities of the role.

4. Only Include The Skills You’ve Learned from Your Side Hustle

If you decide not to include your side hustle on your resume, you should still include the relevant or highly transferable skills you’ve gained from it in some way.
