Have a few questions that I’m hoping you can help me with. I took the CFA L1 exam in June and I’m sure I failed, I logged about 180 hours of study and I am going to apply for the December exam as soon as I am able to (when results come out).
Now the time has come for me, CFA level 1 or not, to seek new employment.
Before June, I had “CFA Level 1 Candidate” under education. Now I am no longer a candidate but will be again soon. Obviously I cannot write that I am even though I plan to… anyone have any ideas on how to word this without breaching CFAI Code of Ethics and without looking like a life n00b? I’m thinking best just to be honest and say that I took the exam and awaiting results, and leave it there.
In an interview, do I need to mention the fact that I took the June exam? Or could I say that I’m currently studying for it and will be applying soon?
