Where should I list my education on my resume?

Do I even have to at all?

Yes, you should list it. If you are a new worker without much experience, applying for a summer job or student job, put it above your work experience. If you feel that your work history is stronger than your education, then you should list it at the top instead. To keep interest, lead with your strongest, most relevant attribute.

When making a professional resume, at the top should an objective or qualifications that you have. Then comes your work history and then volunteer experiences that you may have. After that, you should list your education after all your work/volunteer experience, and before your references if you chose to include any.

I put my educational information at the top of my resume, but I am reasonably new to the workforce so I consider my education to be the most important part. Those that I know who have less than a bachelor's degree usually put their educational information at the bottom of the page.

Unless you are a new graduate, list your education after your job history. A new graduate should list education (including major, relevant courses, internships, and perhaps GPA) first. The longer your work history, the less information you need to provide about your education. If you do not list it at all, expect to be asked why in an interview.

The education location on your resume depends on where you are in your career. If you have relevant work experience, that should come first. Then edcuation on the bottom of your resume, in school order. If you are a college graduate then you do not need high school information. If you are a recent graduate, education comes first.
