How do you add continuing education to your resume?
Closed

I have always wondered what education I should put of my resume. I graduated from high school. Than attended two years in business school for IBM, medical secratary, after that I took a two year program for LPN, and there is a lot of certifications that you have to do there through out the years. I worked for a major insurance Company and carried 5 licenses with them, and than worked for a State organization that was sending me off for some type of traning. If I put all that on a resume they say it is far to long. If I put just for the job I am applying for it looks slight. Any suggestions?

List it right along with the rest of your education. Education shows discipline and eagerness to learn.

i think you do need to put it all on ,,, we are all guilty of not selling ourselves to well .. everything you have done and what you gained from it says the sort of person you are .... keep it consise but get it all in .. ongoing studies sounds good ... but there is nothing wrong with continuing education .... Good luck **

After you list your past job experience then you list your education and also list the continuing education

I would include everything that you have done, long or not. It shows what you have accomplished.

I would check an online writing lab (OWL). Many universities have them. I found the one at Purdue to be very helpful http://owl.english.purdue.edu/

I would include only certifications that directly relate to the job that you are applying for. If a certain certification can benefit the company the include it, if it dosen't do anything to help benefit the company then leave it off.

Just add on your resume that other certifications are available upon request.

Put it all in because, as someone who hires people all the time, I want to see all education and training that a prospective employee has, whether relevant or not to a specific job. In general, the more training and education a person has, the more desirable he or she is to hire.

It depends what job you are applying for. Also put in your most recent schooling, no matter what it is. When I took my careers class, we learned that were were just supposed to include our last five years unless there was something huge before then. Also, resumes should only be two to three pages long, maximum. You can include some details about the more important jobs/education that are related to the position you are applying for and then, for the other less important stuff, just set it up in a list or a table.
