This case manager resume has the education section listed first because specific education is crucial for this job.
Normally, a job seeker who is not a recent graduate and has relevant work experience would list the work history first followed by the education. If this case, however, the job ad noted that the candidate must have completed specific courses to be considered for the job.
Since the course work is absolutely crucial to being considered for the job, it has been listed first so the employer reviewing the resume will know that this candidate has the critical requirements for the job.
