Resume for Career Change – Education Section

When editing your resume while changing career, how do you present your education? What does the education section of your career change resume look like?

The Education Section should show the institution(s) where you studied, and year(s) attended, or degrees received. If what you studied was relevant to the work you want to do, show that as well.

If you did not graduate, say, “Years attended”. Some people do not include the graduation year because they do not want to reveal their age or that they did not graduate. Someone reading a resume without this information will likely conclude that the person is hiding something and will lose trust in that person.

To help you update your resume, including its education section, here is a career change resume template I made.

These ideas are from the book I wrote, CAREER CHANGE GUIDE, to help you find your own way.
