Robert, thanks for taking the time to ask this question here. Employment history is one of the basic parts of a resume. It's where you show the jobs you've held, each job title, the employer, and the dates of employment.

Next to that, list the main duties of the job, using the kinds of action words spelled out elsewhere on this site. New grads can include internships and volunteer work here as well.
