Whether you are thinking about moving into a new field or getting a job in an industry that you have not had to job search in for a while, you will definitely find that it is time for you to update your resume. Your resume is something that is meant to represent you to your prospective employers and in some cases, you may find that it is the only contact you will have before someone calls you. There is no denying how important your resume is, and you will find that there is a lot of work that can go into getting up to code. When you are thinking about putting your educational advances on your resume, there are many things that you need to remember.

The first thing that you should consider is the placement. Remember that your educational credentials should never be the first thing that you put on your resume; many people make this mistake. Especially if you are brand new to the industry, you will find that you should not make the educational credentials the first thing that they see. This means that you should file it somewhere lower down on the priorities and instead worry on how you are going to be able to work on your past accomplishments. There are many different soft skills that will transfer from job to job and you will find that if you list your education first, you might very well be distracting from them.

When you are looking to make your way in a brand new industry and when you are thinking about what you can do to make sure that you are not lost in the flow of things, think about what you have that they won't need to teach. For instance, if you have mostly been working in sales and you are looking to transfer to an IT position, why not sell yourself based on your communication skills? Also remember that any business can benefit from having someone who is good with customer relations. Take some time and really consider what your options are going to be when it comes to choosing the skills that you want to represent you. Interestingly enough, training technical knowledge is much easier than training customer service!



Take a moment to think about what you have to offer a new company or a new industry. Chances are good that though your education is going to be important, they are not going to be the factor that makes or breaks your interview. Instead, think about what you bring to the table all on your own and what you can do to make sure that you are going to be able to get the results that you need. There are many people out there with your certifications, but what can you do to make yourself stand out?

More and more people are hitting the job market, and when you need to make sure that you are standing out, you will need to consider how you are going to be able to set up your resume. Your education is important, but don't believe that you can make it based on the strength of it alone. Experience and accomplishments can get you a lot farther!
