Put Your Education to Work on Your Resume

Put Your Education to Work on Your Resume

Kim Isaacs, Monster Resume Expert

Experienced Job Seekers

If you are focusing more on experience than education, list the basic facts regarding your degree, including institution name, location, degree, major and date. For example:

New Jersey College — Newark, New Jersey
BS in Economics, Minor in Psychology, June 1983

High School Information

Include your high school or GED information if you don’t have any college credits. If you have college credits, remove references to high school.

Educational Credentials Lacking?

Some job seekers are concerned that their educations don’t measure up to HR requirements. If you don’t have a degree but have been participating in ongoing training, list your related courses, seminars, conferences and training in the Education section (create a list called “Professional Development”). Your training might be so impressive that a lack of a formal degree is overlooked. For example:

Professional Development Highlights:

• Product Launch in a Global Marketplace
• E-Commerce Solutions
• Selling the Dotcom Vision
• Increasing Sales Through Relationship Selling
• Professional Management Program
