Education or WE first on resume?

Postby goCATSgo » Mon Sep 23, 2013 8:57 pm

I can't quite decide which to list first on my resume. I graduated in 2010 and have had significant WE since. Thoughts/advice are appreciated.

Education first unless for some reason it is really bad and your work experience is amazing.

If I went to Thomas Jefferson, but clerked for a prominent judge I may put that first.

check out the sample law school resume on Harvard's website, I literally copied it and put in all my information -- it's a great layout
