Experience First, Education Second
Unless you’re a recent graduate, put your education after your experience. Chances are, your last couple of jobs are more important and relevant to you getting the job than where you went to college.
Also Keep it Reverse Chronological…
Usually, you should lay down your educational background by listing the most recent or advanced degree first, working in reverse chronological order. But if older coursework is more specific to the job, list that first to grab the reviewer’s attention.
But Skip the Dates
Don’t list your graduation dates. The reviewer cares more about whether or not you have the degree than when you earned it.
Highlight Honors, Not GPA
If you graduated from college with high honors, absolutely make note of it. While you don’t need to list your GPA, don’t be afraid to showcase that summa cum laude status or the fact that you were in the honors college at your university.
Include Continuing or Online Education
Don’t be afraid to include continuing education, professional development coursework, or online courses in your education section, especially if it feels a little light. “Online courses are a more-than-accepted norm nowadays, and your participation in them can actually show your determination and motivation to get the skills you need for your career.”
