It does not matter if you have an MBA, a couple of A levels or just finished college. Education is one of the essential Resume Headings.

  • If your education is a stronger asset than your job experience than list it first.
  • List the highest of your GPA marks major or overall GPA.
  • Try to include the standard 4.0 GPA scale (re-scale your GPA the 4.0 system if necessary).
