Resume Education Section

As with the History/Experience section, list your Education credentials in reverse chronological order. Show your completed degrees or licenses first, then show your completed certificates and key training. Follow that by listing Education in progress with a proposed date of completion.

Bold type anything that you wish to highlight, such as your completed degrees for example. There’s no need for too much detail here. Try to be concise by showing only your majors as well as any awards and/or distinctions received.

To be impressive you can list grade point averages of 3.5 or better and highlight any courses of study engaged in currently as it relates directly to the position you seek.

If your awards and commendations are impressive, you can give them a section of their own. Always quote some sources to substantiate.
