Currently on my resume for education I have the following:
University I went to Graduation date: Month, year Bachelor of Science in Subject I studied GPA: 4.0
(note: the above has one line break for a total of two lines. If you're on mobile you might see it as multiple lines)
I'm currently about to start classes next term that will be pre requisites for a Master's program. I have not yet taken the GRE, or applied to the actual program (as without the pre-requisites I am ineligible flat out).
How should I put that I'm pursuing the MS? Currently I added to the last line
Master of Science in subject I will study - in progress
The chief reasons I want the MS to be on the resume in the first place are:
- So employers know that I am taking classes, and may need some slight flexibility in scheduling (a 9-6 won't quite be feasible)
- The jobs I'm looking at are Software development positions. My BS is in Industrial engineering (nothing to do with software) but the Master's is in Computer science. This should indicate that I know more than my education alone might give away (though relevant work experience listed elsewhere should also give that away).
