If you're an undergrad applying for summer analyst or full-time positions, is it inappropriate to list your work experience BEFORE your educational background? I know that this is common practice at the MBA level:

1) Work Experience
2) Educational Background
3) Additional Information

I'm considering doing this because my educational background is sub-par (3.4 at Ivy target), but my work experience is really really good (sorry, not intended to come off as a tool). Why not put what separates you from the rest of the pack first?

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...
