I post it. Why not? #AlwaysLearning


I personally wudnt unless Absoltuely there is a need to show that skill... And u have substantiating project experience on it!!!


PwC1, Now go find something else on earth to do

Better to include it in context with description of project where you used it - otherwise like listing "Excel" as a software skill - lame
