The career trajectory for people today is much different than it was for their grandparents. Gone are the days when one could expect to work one’s entire life, without interruption, for a single employer. In part this is because of the “Great Recession” from 2007 to 2009, when many people lost their jobs. However, younger workers are also increasingly willing to “job hop” in order to find their perfect life balance. This might involve a change in career, the decision to stay at home with young children, or even taking “time out” from a career to travel or engage in volunteer work.
Having a solid education section helps to display the foundation of your knowledge and expertise. Depending on your professional experience, you may want to consider switching the order of the professional experience and education sections. For instance, college or high school students that lack seasoned professional experience benefit from emphasizing their education by placing it before the professional experience section. In addition, if you possess a wealth of professional experience then it is appropriate to keep this section short and sweet.
The certifications section is the most important of the other sections you can include, but adding a certifications or licenses section is largely dependent on your industry. For example, the nursing field has strict licensing requirements while the customer service sector does not. If your industry requires certifications the hiring manager will be intent on finding them in your application. Make sure to thoroughly research your industry to find any relevant certifications or licenses you may have missed.
