If you have already had two or more jobs, realize that college is enough behind you that your Professional Experience section should go before your Educational information. Also, the further college is behind you the less you need to include about it. In other words, after 8 years and 2-3 jobs you only need to mention the name of the college and your degree (major and minor, if you have both). You do not need to mention GPA or various areas of concentration (unless they are important to the career you are going for). And if you graduated with honors, that’s always worth mentioning.
