Education

  • Include name of college, city & state, graduation date, full degree name (including double majors), any additional minors, and GPA (see more information below).
  • Consider removing high school information by the end of your second year at Gettysburg.
    • Prestige of high school does not mean anything to an employer unless you are trying to get a job at that high school or you know the recruiter is an alumna/us of that high school. Even so, this is a conversation topic, NOT a resume point.
  • In listing your GPA, a very generalized suggestion is to include it if it is a 3.0 or higher.
  • Honors and awards, like deans list or prestigious scholarships, can be included as a subsection of your institution. See the Honors and Awards Section for additional information on other awards.
