Passed: so how do you write the "charter pending" status

OK, good news for me, I am not slaving away over this stuff again next year! Woohoo! Time to update the resume! Not sure if CFA will take my work experience… maybe, maybe not. So I’m a “charter pending” candidate for now. But question: how do you write it on the resume. bchadwick, CFA charter pending bchadwick, CFA (charter pending) bchadwick, CFA charter pending candidate (I’ve seen this one) bchadwick. C.F.A. c.p. (OK, I know this one isn’t right, but I just had to have fun writing it) Did they explain this in the professional standards section? Maybe that’s why I failed ethics (how embarrassing, but at least I still passed)

I wrote: “Passed Level III CFA Exam, Charter Pending”

I have almost 4 years to figure how to right charter pending

Do not put bchadwick, CFA or bchadwick, CFA (charter pending). If there is one thing I learned in ethics, you either have it or you don’t. Just put Passed CFA Level 3, charter pending somewhere on your resume (not in bold or enlarged font :wink: )

Yeah, that sounds consistent with the principles. Can anyone confirm what’s acceptable? I know that it’s fine to say passed L3, but somehow it doesn’t flow as well as “Level X candidate”.

Volume 1, p. 106 of the CFAI text has some proper references, but none strictly details how to indicate charter pending status. I don’t have the work experience, so officially it’s ok for me to say “Passed all three levels of the CFA Program and will be eligible for the CFA charter upon completion of the required work experience.”

Oooh, that’ll fit nicely somewhere lost in the resume. :wink:

Page 106 says “may be eligible” not “will”…those little details…

See the comments on p. 107. That’s indicated as a proper reference.

Ahh, I see “will” on page 107 now.

So because I only have 1.5 years applicable work experience I can only write “Passed all three levels of the CFA Program and will be eligible for the CFA charter upon completion of the required work experience.” and not charter pending? Bummer bro.

“Passed CFA levels I, II and III. CFA Charter pending.”

i have 0 years applicable :slight_smile:

ahahah Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > “Passed CFA levels I, II and III. CFA Charter > pending.” ahahah, do you know for sure if this is acceptable or standard, or is it just a suggestion?

if that was an ethic question, what would be your answer? :slight_smile:

judging by this year, my answer would be wrong. The first part is factual, so ok. The second part looks acceptable, so I guess I should answer “not allowed.”. :wink:

csk, do you intend to get the charter after all?.high paying IT job isnt a bad alternative.

Yeah, i am still debating, i still dont know what i really want to do, but i just wanted to sit idle and do nothing - so i enrolled in the programm
