Resume Honors/Awards Information

The Honors / Awards block of your r閟um� may be included with your education block if you have fewer than three items to list. However, a separate heading emphasizes the word honors for the reader who scans the r閟um�. If you have fewer than three honors, you may wish to combine relevant activities with honors and include a block titled HONORS AND ACTIVITIES.

Honors and activities may include:

  • Academic honor societies such as Phi Beta Kappa or Phi Kappa Phi (If the honor society may be unfamiliar to your audience be sure you specify its nature to avoid confusion with social clubs.)
  • Scholarships
  • Awards
  • Membership and offices held in professional societies
