How To List Your Education on Your Resume

A resume writing question that is often asked ➟ Where should my education section go?

The answer is … it depends.

If you don’t have a lot of professional experience, consider putting your education at the top of your resume.

This will help you showcase other experiences like coursework and extracurriculars.

As a professional with more years of experience, your education usually goes towards the very end of your resume.

You also want to keep it simple - degree, graduation year, academic institution name and location.

➟ Pro tip: Pay attention to the job posting. Depending on the employer and the industry, you may be asked to list your education first.
