Education, Training, and Credentials
The last section of your resume, regardless of whether you are using a chronological, functional, or combination resume, should list education, training, and credentials. Anyone looking at your resume who wants this information will know, automatically, to look at the bottom of the page. You can alter the title of this section as necessary — for example, you may only have education, not training or credentials.
How far back into your schooling do you need to go? If you have a college degree, you should not include any education prior to that. There is an exception to that rule. If your education prior to college included something that helps qualify you for the position for which you are applying, you should include it on your resume.
For each entry in this section, list your degree — for example, B.B.A. in Marketing — followed by the name of the school, the city in which it is located, and the year the degree was conferred.
Employers don't have a lot of time to read each resume they receive. They need to be able to scan each one and immediately find the skills that can fill their needs. Make sure you list the skills on your resume so they can be found at a glance.
Training is anything that has prepared you for the job you want, other than formal education, which you will include under education. It can include a continuing education class, a workshop, or another program that does not award a degree.
If you have credentials that allow you to work in your field, list them in this section. If you are applying for a job as a teacher, for example, you have to be certified by the department of education in the state in which you want to work.
