I am studying to be a Vocational Rehabiltion Counselor and don't know when to capitalize career names. Is capitalization used differently for resume writing than for writing papers regarding different careers?

Job roles and career titles are only capitalized when they are part of a person's title:


The audience listened to the president.

The audience listened to President Obama.

We are still waiting for Chairman John Smith

We are still waiting for the chairman, John Smith.


NOTE: Words do not suddenly change into proper nouns because they are being used in a resume.


You are studying to be a vocational rehabilitation counselor.
