This is related to my question that I asked here. Now that I have the status of CISA exam passer (See answer from Rory in link),
Where can I best present this achievement in my resume?
I am thinking of two places:
- As an addendum to my current job in the Work History section
- Within the professional certifications and honors section
While I gained the experience to pass this exam mainly from my work, its not strictly a function of my job per se.
This achievement fits well in the professional certifications section, but I have not actually achieved the CISA certification yet. In order to apply for certification, I still need about 2 years of work experience. Hence this information could be misleading if present here.
Adding my status as a CISA exam passer, given the difficulty of the exam, should distinguish myself from other candidates in seeking a job in the IT Security / Audit profession. It speaks to my dedication.
