Q. It took me 6 years to complete my Bachelor's degree. I am afraid that showing dates for my degree is going to make people wonder why it took me so long and hurt my chances of getting an interview. Any tips?
A. I have good news. There are several ways to keep the dates for your education from raising any potential red flags in the minds of readers.
The simplest answer is to not include dates for your education. Many resumes exclude dates for education since they can easily serve as a basis for age discrimination.
If your education is a key qualification and / or you need to show dates in order to address an apparent "gap," then simply include the year that you earned your degree (not the date range).
