CFA member on resume?

If I’m a CFA level 3 candidate and already obtained membership with CFAI, do you think there’s value in mentioning CFA membership on my resume?

In order to become a member, you need to have your professional work experience and professional references approved by CFAI. It’s not just some off the street club you join.

Schweser CFA® study packages are the key to CFA exam success. Serious about the passing the CFA exam? Just choose Schweser.

Nah, it really makes no sense. Level 3 candidacy is the only thing, IMHO, you should mention. Mentioning membership screams of insecurity because it is uncommon to do so and does not change much because recruiters can gauge whether your experience is good enough. I do not know does it make any difference from ethics perspective (what you are implying), probably not, but you want to think about it too if you are really going to put it.

Happy job hunting buddy!
