Placing CFA Candidate on Resume
Okay, so I am looking to find a job, however I have been waiting these last couple weeks to find out the results of June’s Level II exam. I found out I passed, so I want to put it on the resume.
The issue is that while I will be sitting for Level III next June, I understand that CFAI says that I am not considered a Level III candidate until I actually pay them the money and sign up for it. That won’t be until at least close to the end of the first fee deadline date, most likely the 2nd deadline date. So while technically not a Level III candidate, what would be the best way to show that on a resume?
What I currently have is “CFA Candidate, Passed Level II (Will sit for Level III 06/01/2013; both Levels I and II passed on first attempt)”
Is that an ethics violation to say candidate in that fashion? I’m thinking no because I did not indicate I’m a Level III candidate, just that I passed Level II and will be sitting for Level III next year. The other side of the coin is it’s a violation by extension, but I’m unsure.
Study together. Pass together.
