A Resume without Focused Keywords will Never be Found Online Think you have NO Experience? Think Again - Volunteer, Community and Co-op Work Are Very Relevant on your New Resume

If you are a recent college graduate seeking an entry-level position in your chosen field, the best place on your resume for your education information is at the top of the first page, just underneath your job objective.

List institutions where you have completed, or will soon complete, some level of education. Place them in reverse chronological order. Unless your highest level of education is high school, and you are a recent high school graduate, do not include your high school.

Clearly indicate the type of degree you earned, along with its standard abbreviations – this helps in case you are posting your resume online. If employers search for a specific degree by initials only, yours won’t be missed. Also list any majors, concentrations, emphases, or minors applicable to your degree or diploma. If your grade point average is at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, list is as well.

Here’s an example:

MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (MBA) – Expected 2007
Concentration: Global Supply Chain Management
University of Southern Wisconsin
GPA: 3.5/4.0

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (BSBA) – 2005
Emphasis: Finance
Northern Wisconsin University
GPA: 3.6/4.0
