Why should you include an education section?
The education section can help persuade employers that your educational background or academic background will help you do your job more effectively and provide evidence of your qualifications.
Tip from an Advisor: When listing your GPA, if your school is not on a 4.0 grading system to identify that. Generally, you can identify that by listing your GPA as follows 3.2/5.0
