Resume Question

I’m planning to take up my CFA L1 in December and applying for jobs right now. Is it advisable to mention that I’m in the CFA path even now or do you guys think that its better to mention it once I complete Level I. Thanks

If you paid and are registered for Dec. L1, you can put something like “CFA Level 1 Candidate…Dec 2008” on your resume. Definitely put it on your resume if you’re a candidate. If you aren’t registered yet, I wouldn’t put it on there. Goes against the CFA Ethics, which you will become VERY familiar with soon!

If you are registered for Level I - it is better to mention it. It shows a level of commitment that is at least somewhat higher than for someone not registered in the program at all…
