I put my MA into my resume because I do a lot of aid as an assistant instructor at the kids class, rank advancement is included as [strikeout]some of[/strikeout] my biggest accomplishments (hey man, I was homeschooled, lay off okay?), and because my Sifu is one of my reference contacts. :P
Of course, it's never been brought up in any interviews I've had yet. What HAS been brought up is my 3 semesters of Italian at college, which seems to excite the female managers I wind up being interviewed by. :>
P.S. Congrats on the new job!
I don't put my MA training on my resume at all. However, I mention it briefly on my website that include my portfolio work etc.
