Quick resume formatting question (time sensitive)

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jul 29, 2012 1:42 pm

Quick resume formatting question...

Is it okay, under Education, to have the formatting look consistent with Experience. So, like this:

SCHOOL...........................................................CITY, STATE
DEGREE............................................................MONTH, YEAR

COMPANY........................................................CITY, STATE
TITLE...............................................................MONTH, YEAR

Usually, I've seen it like this:

SCHOOL...........................................................CITY, STATE
DEGREE, MONTH, YEAR

COMPANY........................................................CITY, STATE
TITLE...............................................................MONTH, YEAR

To me, that seems inconsistent. I, personally, like the top formatting better. But, I feel like I see the bottom more. Is either okay? Or should I stick with what's usually done?

Shameless bump. Thoughts? Does this matter? Bids due tomorrow.

Thanks.

Don't know that it matters. All I can say is that our CDO told me to balance the amount of text I had that was aligned left and what was aligned right. So, your first option would conform more with what I was told.
