Chalk Talk: Resume Tips
The “Honors and Memberships” section of the resume provides a chance for a candidate to boast about the honors he/she earned for academic performance in college. Here, the candidate may note if he/she earned a spot on the Dean’s List (and the years this was accomplished) and if he/she received, for example, Cum Laude honors upon graduating. He/she may also list his/her class ranking in the school of study. One shouldn't be afraid to list all of his/her achievements in this section for fear of bragging; although they won't earn someone a job, they can be the difference when two candidates are neck-and-neck. This portion of the resume should also be dedicated to the candidate’s memberships in college organizations to show they are well-rounded.
