Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This seems to be a section that is missing currently from the CV details. Any plans to add this? Even though I know it's not really the most important thing to have listed as a part of one's career accomplishments it would be nice to optionally include this.

Any workaround you people use? Put it as Personal Statement/Experience /Education? – Wernight Dec 23 '10 at 17:05
In the meantime, you could add certifications to the Education or Background fields. – Adam Lear Mar 15 '12 at 13:30
Saul, we’ve added this. It’s pretty straightforward, hopefully it serves your needs. – Matt Sherman Jul 20 '12 at 14:07

We’ll do something like this. We need to think a bit more on how exactly it should be presented, but obviously it is very important for certain jobs / industries. In the meantime, adding them under education seems like a good workaround.

Edit: This has been implemented, you’ll find it right under Education.

I agree, this would be a good additional information. The Server Fault people will appreciate this even more.

Microsoft certifications

As many people will like to show these on these CVs, it would be good if everyone show then in the same way.

Each exam, has:

  • A number
  • The title
  • The date on which it was passed
  • (There is no grade)
  • a set of tags for what the exam covered

Then there are the overall certifications (e.g. MCSD) that each has:

  • a icon
  • date passed,
  • name

Also we have certifications from other companies (e.g. Java etc), but I don’t know what data they have.

Should there be a section on the CV for certifications, or should one of the current sections be used.

It would be nice to have a dedicated section for that, like at LinkedIn profile.

  • Meanwhile, my certifications found home in the "Education" section of Careers CV:

Given that I learned quite a bit to obtain certifications, placing them into Education feels quite natural.

Heck, given my past experience in job hunting I sometimes feel that learning / education was one and only useful thing about certifications. At job interviews, nobody bothered to ask about how I scored in this and that exam - all they were interested in was solving programming puzzles and API details.

I would like to see it as an autocomplete field.

This was asked almost two years ago. Any word on this? I currently have one certification and am planning on getting another in the next couple of years. Adding this to my Careers CV as something other than a footnote would be really nice.
