Resume Tip #14: Include the rank in your resume if you’re in the first 10%
Being the first, second or third is always rewarding, no matter the situation you’re in. Even if you and your colleagues consider yourselves friends, you’re unknowingly competing against each other in school. Grades don’t directly represent one’s intellect, but are a good indicator of someone’s capabilities and work ethic.
Resume Tip #14: Include the rank in your resume if you’re in the first 10%.
What you need to do:
- Compute your rank based on your colleagues’ average grades;
- Write the rank in your resume only if you’re in the first 10%;
- Also, don’t forget to include the total number of students from your major.
The first impression is very important for anyone, even though professional recruiters try to avoid creating one in the first 30 seconds. Things that don’t give you an advantage are better to be omitted.
