How should past technical classes be included on my resume?

by mabachtell
(Baltimore MD)

I am an MIS/Finance grad and took many programming languages while getting my BS. Since then I have worked 5 years in technology but not relevant to any classes from college. Should these programming languages be listed on my resume (they haven't been used in years)... if so how should they be presented?

Answer: For relevant coursework, I would usually advise that they just be listed under an "Additional Coursework" heading, with the title of the course and the date taken. But if they're not relevant to the work you are doing, and if they took place so long ago they're not even of current use, I don't know that I'd bother to include them.
