Captain Writes A Resume - Day 6: Education At The Bottom

From 4/16 to 4/22, I'm writing my own resume. It's time to stop pontificating and see if I can actually put one together myself.

I'm putting my educational accomplishments at the end of my resume. I'm already established in my field, which means my career doesn't depend much on what I studied where. And given that the degrees I earned at the schools went to don't hold much of a wow-that's-impressive punch, there's no special reason to flaunt my pedigrees.

There are good reasons to put education at the top of a resume.

  • You have no work experience.

  • You took time off to go to school.

  • You degree is directly relevant to the position you want.
