Creating a resume and not sure where to start? If you do not have enough relevant work experience to showcase, no need to worry! Incorporating your ed2go coursework to your resume can help enhance your background and draw attention to your newly acquired skills. Here are just a few steps you can take to impress your hiring manager:
Always list your education information as a separate section on your resume. The best order of placement depends on what you are trying to emphasize. Typically, it is recommended to place your work experience before your education. If you are changing careers or have continued your education to support your new goals, however, then education should come first. Also, if you are a recent graduate or have less than five years of work experience, then outlining your most recent educational background at the top of your resume will appear more up-to-date and consistent with your overall timeline.
Keep things tidy! Under your education headline, write the name of the school you attended and location, followed by the certificate or degree earned and the year of completion. If you did not receive a certificate or degree, you can accentuate your strengths by mentioning completed coursework with the title, “Relevant Coursework,” followed by the year of completion. Be sure to only highlight specific courses that apply to the job.
