Resume Certifications

It is important to list all business and technical certifications you’ve obtained on your resume. Certifications should be listed in a separate category from education and degrees. Only certifications that pertain to the job that’s being applied to should be listed. Listing certifications that do not pertain to your current field could confuse hiring managers.

Students and entry-level applicants can list certifications that are related to their academic careers. Managers, executives and experienced applicants should list certifications that pertain to their current and previous job roles. Each certification should detail the full title of the certification and the year it was received.
