Job-Seeker Resume Tutorial: Listing Academic Honors

Should I list Academic Awards, Honors, Recognition Under the Education Section?

Here’s how to deal with academic honors and awards on your resume…

  • You can, but sometimes doing so pushes the important Experience section to a less prominent position on the resume, so use your judgment.
  • If you have many, it may be better to list honors and awards in a later section toward the end of the resume.
  • Items to include: Scholarships, Dean’s List, Honor Roll, Awards.
