10 ways to add value to your qualification

The part that talks about qualifications can add value to your CV, as long as you include the necessary information and you tailor it to your work experience and your expectations. Although most people, especially those who are experienced in the domain they are dedicating themselves to, tend to make a short list of their qualifications, the truth is that employers are satisfied with longer paragraphs on this subject, as long as the data is relevant. These 10 ways of making the qualifications more valuable should be considered when writing the CV.

10 ways to add value to your qualification

1. Start by making a general list with all your qualifications and training. After enumerating them, order them in reverse chronological order.

2. Exclude those qualifications that are no longer relevant because other degrees supersede them. Insist only on the essential parts and describe them sufficiently.

3. Include the duration of your studies and the exact qualification that was obtained.

4. If you left school early, at 16 or 18 years old, insist on those examinations that you passed with good degrees. In this way, you will tell the employer more about your abilities and inclinations. However, if you have a degree, there is no need to give details of this sort, as the degree is more important and offers sufficient information.

5. If you fulfilled a research project and especially if that projects is related to your work area, include more information about this achievement on your CV.

6. Even if you didn’t manage to achieve the degree that would normally be given at the end of your last studies, mention the program. This lets the employer see that you are preoccupied in improving your education. However, be prepared to answer some questions and give reasons for not finishing your studies in time.

7. Include in this section all the qualifications that were obtained by examination, for example courses that required a final exam and the corresponding certificate.

8. It’s important to include memberships if they are related to your domain or if they add value to your other qualifications.

9. List your professional trainings, along with their duration. Mention the theme of these trainings, their duration and in case they were provided by a widely recognized body, write it down as well. The reputation of some organizations is able to speak for itself and the fact that you were accepted to their trainings and that you were able to fulfill them represents a huge advantage.

10. Permanently upgrade your professional certifications. You’re not done with studying once finishing collage. Your potential will be diminished with every year that passes by if you can only rely on your university degree. Further professional upgrade will always be appreciated by employers.
