I'm a newbie member, and I have to say that the site has been a wonderful resource so far.
I am in an uncommon situation, and would love to hear some advice on how to handle this on my resume.
My brief bio: BA Math, then software engineer for 10 years, then stay-at-home dad for 7 years. While staying at home I earned an MS in computational finance. Now I want to reenter the workforce in this new capacity.
I addressed the 7-year gap in work experience by stating quite plainly that from Jan 01 to present I was a stay at home dad.
But where do I add the new degree to make it clear that I've been retooling recently and that I want to head in a new direction? Is this just something I leave for the cover letter? Dare I include my MS near the top of my resume? :o
Thanks very much for your input.
