In this article, you’ll learn how to find and write your Skype ID in a resume.
Nowadays, you will probably have more Skype interviews instead of real-life interviews. And when recruiters ask you for your Skype name or Skype ID, you want to be able to give it to them. Or provide it immediately in your CV. I will show you how to find and how to write it.
And what is a Skype ID?
Your Skype ID is a unique code that Skype calls your Skype name. With this code, people can find you very quickly. Just copy and paste it into the search box, and you will find the exact person. Because with personal names, it is way harder to find someone. And Skype ID is not even the right term, I use it to lure you to my blog, so I can tell you what it really is. So, do not get confused by the terms; Skype ID and Skype name mean the same thing. But Skype ID is something we (the people) name it, and Skype calls it Skype name.
I will show it to you with the help of screenshots, and all the areas you can click or copy I marked purple. You can find it in three simple steps.
- Open Skype and click in the upper left area with your profile photo, name, and status.
2. Then you see a pop-up, click on ‘Skype profile.’
3. In your Skype profile, you will see your details and your Skype name; it looks like a long code. Copy this and paste it into your CV. Yes, I covered it with a purple line.
Then you want to present your Skype ID properly. The best is to put it in a logical place, where you have written your other contact details. Just copy and paste the whole ID into your resume, and you are done! Because with this Skype name, recruiters can find you more quickly than with your birth name. Have you ever tried to find someone through skype using their names? I always find that very hard because there are probably 100 or more people with the same name. Especially in Russia, because it seems like everyone is called Sasha or Vladimir there:). And on planet earth, there must be a hundred or thousand people who are named Michelle Koolen.
