Linda W.- Welcome to A2K! Very Happy

A GED can be listed as a High School graduate. If the GED was achieved through a local school, then list the name of that school. Otherwise, leave off the name of the school. Or you may choose to list the last school attended or the school district name.


I saw this, but I don't know. I think that what matters is the job that you are seeking. If it requires a high school education, you might want to use the guidelines shown above. If you have experience in the field in which you are looking, I would concentrate on training and experience in that field.

If you think that it is necessary, I would go for:

High school graduate- Date

Anyhow, good luck on your job search!

And don't worry about how it will be received. Some will respect you for going back and finishing, some won't. It averages out.

I would list the school and the graduation date (date you received your GED). Only colleges and universities seem to care whether it was a traditional diploma.

On my resume I just listed GED - the year. No one has ever asked me a single question about it.
