Optional Sections

Use these sections as they relate to the types of positions you are applying for. If you list any of these Optional Sections be sure to use information from the beginning of your college experience and beyond and not high school information. Employers are looking for accomplishments you have as an adult. The only exception to this is if your high school activities and accomplishments are very relevant or very outstanding. Review the list below for samples of optional section headings.
