Will Putting Two BAs on My Resume Be a Problem?

Dear Experts, Should I leave out the BA of Economics degree I earned back home when applying for jobs in Canada? I'm going to graduate next year (yes, another BA). Will putting two BAs on my resume be a problem? The recent degree is an honors degree in Administrative Studies, and I'm looking for a job in a business-related field. Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#404 2 degrees on your resume is fine, BUT be ready to answer why you needed them both! (@jtodonnell) Q#404 Only put the degrees on your resume that best fit the position. This is about "focused branding". (@careers20) Q#404 With 2 BAs - as w anything else when writing resume: use the filter of relevancy. If not relevant, it's clutter. (@CareerBranches) Q#404 Can't see how it would hurt. U never know when you'll have that special quality that's NOT requested. (@beneubanks) Q#404 As long as pertinant, two degrees fine. Be sure to focus resume on what "buyer" seeks, not what you want them to know. (@DawnBugni) Q#404 2 BAs are fine; list latest one first in Ed section of res. If concerned, address why 2 in cov letter. (@juliaerickson) Q#404 Nope. You can include both BAs. (@gradversity) Q#404 I've written many resumes for those holding 2 BA's; securing the right level job hasn't been problem.
