Interview Tips: Dress Like You Mean It - You Can Never Over Dress for a Career Interview Use Your Grad Resume to Showcase Research and Intern Work: It Does Matter
May 07

If you have recently graduated and are seeking an entry-level position, it is important to place your education information in a prominent place on your resume. The best location is just beneath your stated career objective, near the top of the first page of your resume.

List all institutions where you have completed a degree or certificate program. It is not necessary to list colleges where you took courses that ultimately led to a degree at another university. For example, if you took three courses at a junior college, and then transferred to a four-year university, leave the junior college off your resume.

Place your education information in reverse chronological order, so that a Master’s degree would appear above a Bachelor’s degree, which would appear above an Associate’s degree, and so on.

Do not include your high school education on your resume, unless you are a recent high school graduate and that is your highest level of education to date.

When listing your education, include your major or area of emphasis, as well as your minor, if any. If your grade point average was at least a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, list that as well. Finally, if you graduated with honors or some type of academic distinction (such as magna cum laude), you should include that distinction on your resume.
