How far back should I list my education? I returned to school last year and finished my degree program earlier this year. Before that, last time I attended school was 1993 (or 1995--can't remember, heh). Is it necessary to list those dates? I don't want to have to call the schools for the dates if it's not necessary to include them.
Hello there. I work in Human Resources and we only verify completed education that is listed on a resume. If you are currently in the process of completing your degree and you want to include that you can put the college and "in process/currently attending" some verbiage of that sort, or if you have completed some college I've seen it presented as
Coursework Completed towards Business Degree
As someone else stated putting dates on your resume is a way to lead to age discrimation. You can list "high school diploma" or "GED" on your resume, but again without dates if that is all the education you have completed.

Actually, all you need is the year you graduated, the degree and what it's in. You only need to include your work history for the past 10 years. You can lump the older jobs together into categories if nessessary. If your degree was over 10 years ago, you don't even need to include the year. That way you're not a victim of age discrimination.
