Recent law-school graduate Brandon Fuller is looking for a job with a nonprofit environmental group.

Fuller presents himself well, said Cathy Wasserman, a career coach and author of Idealist.org‘s Ask Cathy column.

“His résumé is neat, well-organized and has no typos.” she said. “However, he doesn’t demonstrate that he has much environmental experience. … “

Wasserman suggested Fuller add a section on his volunteer work: “This would allow him to include his blog, which I strongly recommend.”

His education should go at the bottom, as he has a job, she said. And he should boldface his degrees, not his schools.

“Unless someone went to a very prestigious school, it is more important to emphasize what someone focused on, not where they focused on it.”
