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.
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.
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,
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.
