If i didn't finish college should I still put it on my resume? i'm going through a career training program through unemployment in it's place, so should i put that for the education part of the resume?

I would recommend placing both on your resume, but be prepared to discuss why you did not finish college.  There is good experience that can be gained in college even if you do not finish, plus you will want to be able to explain what you did in that time frame.  I would, however, place more emphasis on your resume on the career training program.  It is viewed positively when someone has the courage to re-brand themselves mid-career, even if it is not done through the traditional educational path.

Great question, and I actually hear this one quite a bit! I would always encourage educational dates and info to be listed, even if a degree was not attained. Under a section perhaps titled, “Education and Training,” you could mention both your college experience, as well as the Career Training program you are enrolled in currently. As two sections under the same title, you can then describe your focus of study and/or the skills attained for each one. I would start with the most recent info, which is the program you’re doing now. List its name, who is hosting or teaching this, and your dates of involvement (e.g. 1/2014 – present, or 1/2014 – 6/2014). Also list the most important topics or sessions you are covering during this training. Then below this, you can list your college, its location, your dates of previous enrollment, and relevant coursework completed (showing transferable work skills, e.g. business management or graphic arts design). Instead of stating that a degree was not completed, I would frame it more positively! State something like, “Completed coursework towards a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resource Management,” for example. Let the interviewer or recruiter have a chance to talk to you first, to understand why the degree has not yet been earned.

Yes, you can put that on your resume.  Just state attended vs. graduated.  It is important that employers understand the schooling you had.  You might also find out that an employer offers tuition reimbursement that can fund your education so you can complete your degree.

Good luck.

Hello, thank you for your question.  Yes, I would recommend putting any information about education or employment history on your resume.  This is your chance to let potential future employers know your background.

Thank you
