On Harvard's sample resumes, the education section is at the top. However, it seems that these samples are from students who either went straight to law school from undergrad or only took a year off. I've been in the workforce since July 2009. If I were to apply for a job tomorrow, it'd look ridiculous if my education info was placed before my work experience. I realize, however, that I'm not applying to a job -- I'm applying to academic institutions. Should I go ahead and place it at the top? I've got nothing to hide education-wise. Just strikes me as odd coming from someone who has three-plus years of professional work experience.
