Leaving Education Off Of A Resume

Kent Nolen

Every once in a while a client will share with me that she/he has chosen to leave their education off of the resume because their degree is not related to the kind of positions they are pursuing. This is a mistake.

While there are times when it is smart to not include partial education or an incomplete degree, it is almost never a good idea to leave an actual degree off of the resume, even when that degree is not aligned with your desired career path.

If you feel like readers are going to be distracted by the focus of your degree (and thus are inclined to leave it off), you need to find other ways to shape perceptions about your qualifications for a specific position or field; I recommend compelling branding elements and specific achievements.
