Experienced Hire Resume

I am a 1st year associate working for an accounting firm in the Valuation Department. Should I be listing my experience before my education now that I am a whole NINE months into my first post-college job?

well i would say yes, especially if you went to a non target school. if you went to a target school, it honestly doesn't matter.

When companies take a few seconds to glance over your resume, they expect to see education at the top. That's just the way it works.

I wouldn't recommend it... I wouldn't even say it's common practice @ the MBA level.

If anything, keep it short so they get to your work experience quicker...

Best to stick to the standard practice, GPA is one line and if it is at the bottom whoever reads it will notice it more because they'll have to hunt for it
